German police say they arrested a man who was caught pumping iron while driving on German’s no-speed-limits interstate, the Autobahn.
Despite the fact that there is no law preventing anyone from “pumping iron at the wheel,” the driver was lifting weights while driving a truck and was judged to subsequently pose a danger to other drivers on the road.
Officers noticed the truck swerving along the A1 motorway. When closely inspected with binoculars, the driver appeared to be lifting chrome-colored dumbbells as the driver did his training.
The driver even had the audacity to overtake other drivers while on the route.
When they caught up with him at the Tecklenburger Land rest stop, the driver became “unreasonable” and argued that there was no law against “staying fit while driving.” The officers informed him otherwise and fined him 80 Euro with one traffic violation point on his license.
