Officers from Devon & Cornwall’s Roads Policing Team helped to avert a potential accident when they stopped a vehicle that had a giant rolled-up carpet draped over it.
Officers spotted the blue Skoda just as it was about to join the busy A38 at Deep Lane in Plympton.
Most of the front view and much of the rear view from the driver’s seat were obscured by the large roll of carpet.
A spokesperson for the unit tweeted:
‘Fortunately, this vehicle was stopped just before joining the A38 at Deep Lane in Plympton.
‘The obstructed view, as well as the bungee cords, clearly wasn’t a substantial method of securing the carpet.
‘Driver issued a ticket.’

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
