MAINZ, Germany – Undercover highway police who pulled over a man for speeding on the autobahn discovered the driver had turned his station wagon into a full mobile office, complete with laptop, printer, and voltage transformer.
Police spokesman Stephan Lassotta told NBC News the 34-year-old IT specialist made an illegal passing maneuver, traveling 80 mph in a 62 mph zone before being pulled over.
The man faces a fine of more than $170 for speeding and passing traffic in a right-hand lane. However, he will not be charged for the equipment, because police could not prove he was using it while driving.
He was asked to store the equipment in his trunk immediately.
