Driver Gets Pulled Over, Cops Discover He's Sitting On A Bucket, Steering With A Pair Of Pliers

July 16, 2018


Because safety dead last, a driver in King's Lynn in Norfolk, England was recently pulled over and police discovered he'd been driving while sitting on a metal bucket (wrong kind of bucket seat bro) and steering the car with a pair of locking pliers instead of a wheel. He also had a flat tire and a sense of adventure.

The battered car, which also had no front wing, bumper, headlights and a flat tyre was pulled over in King's Lynn in Norfolk.

Norfolk's roads policing unit tweeted pictures of "the most un-roadworthy car" and said there were "too many offences to mention".

Police said the driver has been reported to court.

"Yes this was driven on a road and yes he was sitting on a bucket and steering with a pair of mole grips," officers wrote, as they posted pictures of the vehicle in Saddlebow Road.

What the hell is wrong with people? This is the sort of thing I'd expect to see in a comedy movie, not in real life. Steering with a pair of vice grips -- that's insane. He could have killed somebody. He could have killed everybody. We're lucky to be alive.

Keep going for two more shots.



Thanks to Joel, who's convinced his next mod was going to be cutting a hole in the floor and Flintstoning the car around.

    somebody gift him a proper vehicle, he's clearly down and out.

    TIL locking pliers/vice grips are called 'mole grips'... like, how fucking hard are moles to grip in the UK if you need a pair of these for them?

  • Mike Gover

    We call them mole grips here in the UK because they have the jaw strength of approximately one adult UK mole.

    Sadly, this was the exact comment I was going to make.

  • Bling Nye

    Where's the mugshots?! $10 it's

  • Bling Nye

    Nah, MacGyver would've had some kind of rigged magnesium reaction for headlights, and done something about that flat tire.

  • Nicholas Conrad

    I've seen him drive worse 🤷

    Pssh that's basically a luxury sedan compared to some of the vehicles I've rode in

    Meh, I've ridden in less safe Ubers before..

  • Mark

    In his defense, he was driving at night while the roads were less congested...and he was using locking Vice Grip pliers instead of regular pliers.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I've had this goal to own the worst possible vehicle money can buy... I thought I acheived that goal with my rusty paint-flaking 05 Grand Marquis (with damage to the front-right corner).

    After seeing this... I know I can do better.

    Can I interest you in a mid 2000s era Pontiac Aztek?

  • Closet Nerd

    Idiots... .they spell tire with a "Y" and they have the driver's seat on the wrong side....

  • Bling Nye

    I bet they're too stupid to use the metric system too.
