“One of our officers recently pulled over this driver (reference the photo) for excessive speeding,” said DPD in the post. “The driver expressed surprise, telling the officer, ‘I didn't realize I was speeding.’ While probably true as the giant stack of papers blocked his whole dashboard, this excuse did not prevent him from getting a ticket.

“Drivers - please make sure you can readily see your dash and mirrors, and that the view out your windows is not obstructed by anything inside or outside your vehicle.”
