A photo on radar of a dog in the driver’s seat of an alleged speeding car has been posted online by the Slovakia Police.
According to the Facebook post, police allege a “brown hunting dog” was sat behind the wheel of a Skoda traveling through the village of Šterusy.
The dog allegedly “peeked out the windshield… [at] promising young deer.”
“We ruined the boy’s hunting plans,” the post said.
The driver was allegedly stopped by patrol officers for speeding, but had something else to explain after his dog was snapped on his lap.
The man allegedly told officers that his dog “suddenly jumped over his knees”. However, the radar footage didn’t capture any “sudden movement” from the car.
The driver was issued with a fine on the spot for violating traffic rules, however it’s unclear if the fine includes both speeding and letting his dog sit on his lap while driving, or just speeding.
