Ikea delivery cheaper option to drive home yourself!. The incident happened on the M6 as police pulled them over for dangerous driving. The Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) said the driver was stopped as the vehicle was in a dangerous condition, with obscured views of cars around it.

CMPG posted on Twitter “Do you pay for @IKEA delivery or endanger other road users through your lack of driving view.
Tough decision for some, in this case the delivery would of been considerably cheaper than the fine & points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition, M6 south J6. 3505.”
