Morning y’all
Thanks again to motormaker for sending in today’s pretty dang scary DJK
. . . . . Didja Know?
Police in Germany pulled over a man for speeding and found the driver had a fully equipped mobile office
installed in the front seat of his car.

The man had a laptop with printer, 2 cell phones, portable nav system & GPS receiver, along with a voltage
regulator for power

While the driver was issued a ticket for speeding, they couldn’t charge him with distracted driving because
there was no proof he was operating any of the equipment at the time.

That man is a death trap. Everything is arranged so he can do it all while driving.

A mobile office.. Is that toilet paper I see on the floor? I wonder if he had a coffee maker and a microwave oven in there.. so.. if he were to take a woman out to dinner, where would she sit?

Good Lord... what a mess! I bet he has a hard time vacuuming his car!

Since he insists on driving a death trap, he should just acknowledge it and drive a hearse.

Talking .

When I’m stopped by the police, I always blame the backseat driver. Mrs Aks is always telling me where to turn, slow down, speed up, pass, and yells at the others on the road who seem to be in her way while I’m behind the wheel. I don’t get the ticket!

Wow. I'm real glad that guy doesn't live in my neighborhood.

Many of our police cars look like that. They have mounted compters, printers, cameras, gun racks, writing boards, coffee cups and donuts all next to them in the front seating area.

What a mess!

I wouldn't put up with all that clutter!

I do hope he wasn't using any of that whilst driving!
