A driver was found transporting a car which had broken down by balancing it on the roof of his vehicle. He was ordered to pay a fine of $97 and $140 in court costs. The man also got three penalty points on his driver's licence.
Glyndwr Wyn Richards, 51, pleaded guilty in Aberystwyth Magistrates' Court to using a vehicle with a load likely to cause danger of injury after he was caught on video driving his Volkswagen Passat with a Skoda Octavia strapped to its roof, a UPI report said.
Richards drove through an industrial estate in Aberystwyth, Wales, and transported the car less than 1,000 feet, the report added. The stunt was a "stupid thing to do", the man later admitted to the court.
