The multi-tasking German driver who created a mobile office in his car complete with laptop, printer, and two phones is nothing unusual in the land that invented the motorway - and where speed limits on most of those motorways are still non existent.
These police pictures of German lorry drivers stopped this year including one caught this week with what looks like a breakfast buffet show that the Germany like to make the most out of their cabs.
As well as the fruit basket the cab of the 51-year-old stopped at Steinen included a coffee machine, a cutting board and of course a Munich football club logo hanging from the rear mirror.
The drivers face charges of driving with a limited field of vision and were ordered to remove the objects before they were allowed to continue on their way.
Likewise these other drivers all caught by Swiss police this year were ordered to remove the cab extras, and told they faced a fine for the same offence.
The car driver stopped after speeding with the mobile office in the front of his Ford Mondeo was caught in Germany, obviously reluctant to stray too far from the office.
The 35-year-old workaholic, who was stopped by police on the autobahn, had the car complete with a laptop, printer, and two mobile phones as well as a navigation device, a GPS receiver attached to his windshield, and a voltage converter to power the precarious set-up.
Officers fined him 120 euro for speeding and 'driving with improperly secured cargo'.
