What a plank! Dozy driver pulled over with windscreen nearly completely blocked

This dozy white van driver was stopped by West Midlands Police after driving with her windscreen almost completely obscured by planks.

Officers pulled the driver over just after 8am today as she negotiated busy rush-hour traffic in Aston, Birmingham.

Pictures tweeted by the force show the windscreen almost totally covered with stacks of white planks strapped over the roof of the Vauxhall Combo van.

Motorists expressed their shock at the driver for "taking stupidity to a whole new level."

Twitter user Karl Denning posted: "Stupid is as stupid does."

Meanwhile Aaron Wallace tweeted: "Will get a slap on the wrist by some dumb judge!!"

The driver, aged 30, and from Birmingham, has been summonsed to court for driving without insurance.
