Man stopped for speeding had fully loaded mobile office in car, say German police
(CBS/AP) BERLIN - German police said they pulled over a driver for speeding earlier this week and discovered that he had wired his Ford station wagon with an entire mobile office - laptop, printer, router and more.
We could praise German engineering, but then again, it was an American-made car.
Saarland state police said Friday that the 35-year-old man was driving 130 kph (80 mph) in a 100 kph (62 mph) zone while passing a truck on Monday.
After chasing down the driver, they approached the vehicle and discovered the following "accessories": a wooden frame built on the passenger seat with a laptop on a docking station tilted for easy driver access; a printer; a router; a wireless internet stick; a WLAN antenna; and an inverter to power it all.
Fully loaded indeed.
A navigation system and cellphone mounted to the windshield completed the array.
Somehow, the driver got away with only a speeding ticket of euro120 ($153), because there was no evidence he used the office while driving.
