Could this perhaps the most ridiculous vehicle to EVER been driven on UK roads?
Thursday 13th July | by Cop(ex) | Connect with us on Twitter |
The vehicle that resembled something that had been driven straight out of a scrap yard, also had no front wing, bumper, headlights AND a flat tyre!
It was spotted by Police whilst driving on a public road in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.
Officers have reported the driver for multiple offences in what must have been a paperwork nightmare for the Police Officers concerned.
Pictures of the scrap-heap were tweeted by Norfolks’ Road Policing Unit confirming that the vehicle was “the most un-roadworthy car” they had seen and confirmed that there were “too many offences to mention”.
One of the Officers tweeted: “Yes this was driven on a road and yes he was sitting on a bucket and steering with a pair of mole grips”.
Hundreds of people have since commented on the Tweet that has been ‘liked’ and re-tweeted thousands of times.
One person tweeted: “Gives a whole new meaning to the word BUCKET SEAT”.
Another tweeter asked” “I take it there was no MOT?”.

Someone else Tweeted in DEFENCE of the driver saying: “We don’t know the individuals personal situation/circumstances, it’s been a tough few years for many people. Let’s not be quick to launch this human under the bus.”
It is not known if the person behind the above tweet has ever had their vehicle written off by another vehicle that should never of been on the road in the first place…
Other Officers couldn’t hide their shock at the state of the car.
@PCJonParker tweeted: “I think this is the most un-roadworthy car I’ve ever seen. Ridiculous that it was driven on a public road in this condition”.
@Dave_Sgt also tweeted saying: “Wowzers! I can’t really show another car with one slightly bald tyre now!! That’s truly insane”.
Just one of the many offences which the driver might of been reported for includes Section 40A of the Road Traffic Act that states a person could be committing an offence if they: ‘use a vehicle in a dangerous condition’.
Another Tweeter accused the Police of ‘waging war’ on the motorist saying:
“This war on motorists is totally unfair.
“He’s bound to be a hard-working driver making essential journeys and being picked on by the PC brigade.
“After all them bloody cyclists don’t pay no road tax or insurance – it’s just not fair – why don’t you persecute them?”.
However, I am sure that the person who tweeted the above sentiment would be the FIRST to complain to the Police should their own vehicle (assuming they have one) of been hit by the death-trap that was thankfully taken off of the road by the Police.
Quite how anyone can defend the driver of the vehicle is beyond the comprehension of any of our ‘scribes’ at Emergency Services News.
The driver of this vehicle (whoever they are) will be ‘formally’ recognised for their blatant disregard of their fellow motorists safety, in the next issue of our popular subscriber-only digital magazine.
