Swedish police stopped the vehicle photographed above on Tuesday, when the officers noted that the rear lights were not visible.

Upon further inspection, they learned that an extra-long load was mounted on the trailer that lacked any form of marking – no lanterns or lights, no warning sign anywhere.

What’s more, to make room for the load, the driver had chosen to lower the legs of the trailer. As a consequence, the rear lights were obscured.

Apart from the fact that the vehicle with the load was too long, it was far too wide, too, with its 15.10 pm. It literally took up one and a half lanes.

Due to all these issues listed above, the driver was fined and prevented from continuing his journey.
