Trooper Stops Driver Hauling Snowmobile on Top of His Car
CLAYTON, WI (AP) -- The Wisconsin State Patrol had a little advice for the guy who transported a snowmobile by strapping it to the roof of his Toyota Corolla. Bad idea.
A trooper pulled over the driver on Highway 63 in northwestern Wisconsin Sunday afternoon after seeing the snowmobile perched sideways on top of the sedan.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the 23-year-old driver from Clayton explained to the trooper that he had just purchased the snowmobile was headed to a friend's house to show it to him.
The driver was given a warning and cited for failing to buckle up.
The DOT tweeted a photo of the car with the Polaris topper on Monday with a message ``Folks, don't try this at home.''
