A motorist was caught by police driving with her car bonnet wide open and peering through the tiny gap to see where she was going.
When incredulous officers pulled her over, the 53-year-old woman, who has has not been named, told them the bonnet was faulty and she was on her way to get it repaired.
The incident occurred in Weymouth, Dorset, during a county-wide “No Excuse” safety campaign to educate people about bad driving.
The woman had been using a four inch gap between her dashboard and the bonnet to steer her car through the seaside town.
Police have yet to decide whether they will press charges as they continue their investigations.
