A motorist in New Zealand got slapped with a fine on Sunday for driving with an unsecured trampoline atop her vehicle, but on the plus side, she also got a free escort to her destination. "The vehicle in question was stopped on the city side of the Harbor Bridge and issued with an infringement notice for traveling with an insecure load,"
Auckland authorities said in a statement. "Following this, the police unit ushered the vehicle off the motorway and followed the vehicle a short distance to their final destination to ensure there was no further risk to the public." Added eyewitness Brad Jackson, who happens to be a professional furniture mover, "I couldn't believe it when I saw it...it was hanging over the side of the car. I've seen beds on [car] roofs, but not that wide, nothing like this."
