A Wisconsin State Trooper had a surprise encounter after pulling over an odd-looking vehicle when he noticed something wasn’t quite right.
What he found was a seatless car and a driver using a camping chair instead to operate the vehicle. The photo, taken by the officer, also showed that there were clumps of snow covering the floor of the car.
The incident occurred in the North Central Region of Wisconsin and it is not clear if the driver was arrested or just cited. In a press release, the Wisconsin State Patrol referenced the ruling that requires car seats.
The ruling states that all automobiles manufactured on or after January 1, 1972, must have safety belts installed at all designated seating positions which meet the specifications of the safety belt system with which the vehicle was originally manufactured.
It also says that the seat and seat mechanisms of every motor vehicle must be in proper working condition. Obviously, a camping chair would violate this ruling.
The social media post closed with the very appropriate hashtag “you don’t see that every day.”
