A motorist in Mississauga apparently thought it was a good idea to drive around with huge planks of wood sticking out the car’s left-side windows.

Peel Regional Police tweeted a photo of the offending vehicle, which was stopped while heading northwest on Mavis Road towards Matheson Boulevard on Sunday.

The driver of the Nissan Sentra was given a $160 ticket for driving in a vehicle with an insecure load.
