Police officers were left baffled after they witnessed a dozy driver carrying another vehicle the same size on top of their own.
The unusual offender — who had an entire utility vehicle tied on as their load — was spotted in Hull earlier this week, Hull Live reports.
Officers from Humberside Police stopped the 'dangerous' driver and requested that the truck was unloaded.
The force confirmed via Twitter that the driver had been dealt with for a "load likely to cause danger" and was prohibited from driving away until the second vehicle had been removed.
Not missing the easy opportunity for a one-liner, Humber Roads Police tweeted: "#roadspolicing Not really a pick-up truck….more like a picked up truck. Driver dealt with for Load Likely to Cause Danger and prohibited until the truck unloaded #2358 #206".
Social media users also saw the funny side, with one writing: "You really do wonder what went through the drivers mind, when they stepped back and said to themselves 'yeah, that'll be fine'".
While another joked: "Give 'em some credit, they could've opted for a landscape loading".
Others were especially amused by a high-visibility jacket that could be seen handing off the back of the tied-on truck.
One wrote: "Yeah but they put a dirty florescent rag on the end so it should be ok right???", while another like-minded user joked "Hi-vis jacket makes everything ok doesn’t it?"
