Man Penalized for Driving His Car with Another Car on Top

Driving a car requires that one exercise extreme care and caution so as not to cause injury, harm, damage, or even the death of someone or destruction of property. But there was one man from Wales who admitted that driving his car when it had another car attached above it was a "stupid thing to do". Because of it, he was penalized.

Glyndwr Wyn Richards, 51, was caught on camera driving a Volkswagen Passat with a Skoda Octavia strapped to its roof through an industrial estate in Aberystwyth, Wales, in March.
Prosecutor Ceri Ellis-Jones said Police Constable Phil Westbury had been sent a WhatsApp message showing footage of the car being driven by Richards with another car on top.
Ms. Ellis-Jones said police had sought information from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) about regulations on vehicle loads and how items should be secured safely.

In the end, he received three penalties on his driving license, was fined GBP80, and was ordered to pay costs of GBP115.

So... he was driving through an 'industrial estate', not a public road. And he was fined 80 bux for his 'crime' and also 115 bux in 'costs'? Some fancy legal system they got there.
