A motorist was stopped by police after using a piece bubble wrap to strap a wardrobe to the roof of a car. The driver was pulled over in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, on Friday.
Sergeant Chris Harris tweeted: "A single piece of bubblewrap is not sufficient 2 secure a wardrobe to a car roof."
Officers also found a passenger lying beneath wardrobe doors which were being carried inside the car.
Norfolk Police said the method was "quite clearly dangerous" and it was deciding whether to prosecute.
A police spokesman added: "We would encourage drivers to secure items using appropriate fixings
"This was quite clearly dangerous and drivers could face possible prosecution."
The passenger was lying beneath the wardrobe doors because the rear car seats had been put in the flat position to get them in the vehicle, Sgt Harris added.
