How Much Is The Fine, Officer?

Let's Say It's A Tidy Amount, Ma'am

Police in Germany banned a woman driver's car from the road - for being too untidy. The Vauxhall Astra was so full of junk, magazines, old clothes and even bits of furniture that they could barely see the driver at the vehicle roared down a motorway near Dusseldorf. The woman has been banned from driving it until it passes a tidiness test.

FOOTNOTE: Astra nomical.

Probably rushing to grab a lounger by the pool.

There was a car, a compact at that, exactly like that parked for years around the corner from me. I don't think it was actually driven though, I think the owner simply used it for storage.

I'm glad the officer didn't see my desk. My eldest daughter took a course in archaeology after seeing it.

Should have told them she was just looking for the nearest tip...think they would have believed it? That or told them it was her husband's car. Now that's believable! Probably looked like a bachelors apartment...
