A man has been fined after police found him driving a car with wooden sleepers tied to the left hand side of the vehicle.
NSW Highway Patrol posted pictures of the Saab sedan online on Monday afternoon as a warning against people travelling with unsafe loads, soon after the man was stopped at Toukley on the Central Coast.
The car also had sleepers poking out of the boot, which appeared to be held partially closed with a strap.
"If it doesn't look right it probably isn't," police wrote in a message accompanying the pictures on Facebook.
"A sedan is clearly not designed to carry this load."
The man was not allowed to continue driving with the load. He was fined $448 dollars and lost three demerit points - the offence of driving with an unsecured load was not subject to long-weekend double demerit penalties.
In an unrelated incident, a 62-year-old woman was fined $673 after police stopped her on the Pacific Highway at Ourimbah for a random breath test on Sunday afternoon, where they discovered she had not held a valid driver's licence since 2003.
