Dozy driver caught napping by police

A BMW driver was caught cruising along with the wind in her hair — and her bed sticking up in the air.

Essex Police shared this photo after spotting the double mattress and frame in the convertible at Great Bentley, near Clacton-on-Sea. Using a face palm emoji, the force tweeted: ‘She said, “It’s wedged in the seat, so it’s okay!”’

The force did not say if any action was taken against the driver but causing a danger from distribution of load in a car can attract a fine of £100. The woman was spotted during ‘proactive’ traffic operations in the Clacton and Basildon areas.

Drugs were found in cars, two people were held for drug-driving and an uninsured car was seized.
