Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This is a picture of a Fiesta in a Transit plus three fridges on its way to Georgia. Why was he stopped on the Autobahn?

It was being driven at 60km per hours on the centre lane. Which of course is much to slow for a German Autobahn, and it is on the WRONG LANE... He should have driven on the right hand lane and everything would have been fine. (well he was too heavy as well.)

Maybe I should explain - this passes a humor in my books. But, I am also quite impressed by the ingenuity of the man - squeezing the Fiesta in the Transit must have been quite a trick. My wife's first comment was: That could have been you. Yes, I probably would have attempted something similar. My best was: 7 meter of staircase railing, six chairs, Bicycle, luggage and six crates of Beer in (and on) a Ford Escort Estate - Bicycle was on the inside!!! - Well, you don't inherit six chairs and a staircase railing every day and who would have wanted to miss out on the beer?

But also incredibly stupid.  He should have tail-gated a large truck in the right lane.  Could have gone 80km/h, save half of the gas, and maybe even sneak all the way through.

He just wanted a taste of the good life. Why should the left lane just be for the BMs?
