A church minister who witnessed the hearse getting pulled over in the Queensland town of Dalby took to Facebook to share his disgust at the ‘disturbing’ situation
‘Perhaps the two officers may want to have a good look at them selves. BLOODY DISGUSTING,’ the man wrote.
The Generations Funerals home hearse and a family car were both pulled over on Tuesday for a random breath test.
Dalby police told the Courier Mail that once officers at the random breath-test site realised the car was a hearse, they stopped pulling it over and it was moved back onto the road.
Police explained that the hearse driver wasn’t breath tested, and because it was going at ‘normal speed’ it was hard to spot that it was a hearse and not a regular vehicle.
Other Facebook users commented on the minister’s post, calling out police for their ‘disrespect’.
‘No morals or respect but then again it is the police. Good at demanding respect but forthcoming with very little,’ one woman wrote.

‘How horrible for the family, those two cops need to be reprimanded, obviously they have never had to bury a loved one,’ said another.
Generations Funerals released a statement saying the incident is being handled by the ‘appropriate people internally’ in the Queensland Police.
‘We will not make any further comment pending their investigations and review of the matter,’ it said.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Queensland Police for comment.
Many people sounded off in the comments section, saying police in Dalby, northwest of Brisbane, should have known better
