Enterprising 14-year-old forks out $25,000 to hire driver after police complaint

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Central Otago News

A young Cromwell entrepreneur who runs a garden maintenance company has been banned from riding his lawnmower to jobs.

Johnny O'Neill, 14, set up his successful business J.C. O'Neill Contracting in 2017 and until recently had been driving to jobs around the small Central Otago township on his ride-on 780cc lawnmower.

However, he has been forced to employ a driver to take him to jobs or tow the mower behind his bike after he received a written warning not to drive the mower.
