How stupid you have to be to drive with a suspended license when you have a licensed passenger with you.

I seen this article but I have no idea how he's charged with unsecured load? All the load is in his car, it's not like he had it open in the bed of a pickup truck with no tailgate or something. Don't think that charge is gonna stick. The drive while suspended though...I guess we can infer what the suspension was for, lol.

If he had dark tinted windows or had a vehicle with no windows, this wouldn't be considered "unsecured" at all, provided it was all inside the vehicle. I guess maybe he had nothing preventing the cans from coming forward, in the event of harder braking...

Also the car seems to be missing its licence plate, what's up with that?

Ewwww, even when I take a tied-up bag of cans back to the beer store, all the way in the back, it still stinks.

I can't imagine the smell in that car.

If that load of beer cans shifts/flies around the cabin and in any way interferes with the operator’s ability to control the vehicle it’s considered an insecure load.

Love how much the article emphasizes that the main problem is the inability to use the rear view mirror. Face With Tears Of Joy

No, the main issue is the cans falling forward and interfering with the driver. A lack of rear view is meh.

The main question here is why.

And only the owner can answer that though we can speculate till the drunk cows come home.

BTW was the trunk also full of cans?
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

Perhaps it’s a photoshop to hide the plates in the news article.

I also have to wonder what was in the trunk....maybe more beer cans? It would be most comical if the trunk was empty.

Always rinse your cans/bottles out or for sure they will start stinking--beer rots relatively quickly. Now certainly I don't think this guy rinses out his cans, but just a tip.

Yeah I think that's the main problem but as someone else mentioned the article doesn't really stress that point, it talks about nonsense instead lol. It does say they continued on with the other driver at the helm and with the load "secured" which means they probably sandwiched some cardboard or something between the rear and the front.

Oh yeah for sure that trunk was jam packed with cans and/or bottles, lol. The why is also answered easily--return cans for...beer money :lol:

Someone commented on the news article:


I believe I saw this woman at the marina's recycling bins, right by our family's cottage a few weeks ago just north of Peterborough. She was jamming hundreds of dollars of cans and cases of wine bottles into her Corolla, exactly like the one in the picture. Kinda felt sorry for her at the time...now I'm thinking she's recklessly driving all over Ontario picking up liquor containers.
