Police stopped a car on the A47 on Saturday which had been driven from London with a number of deficiencies.
Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit stopped the vehicle on the A47 at Acle.
The force tweeted: “#A47 no brakes as fluid coming out, no brake lights, seatbelt or tax. Driven from London in condition.”
The condition of the car was met with some shock on social media.
@phil11armstrong tweeted: “That is astonishing I drive that road regularly and to think anybody could meet a vehicle in that condition is scary #idiot.”
@ChrisLeeTM said: “Never a good thing and judging by the state of that I would say it’s down to poor maintenance.”
And @Critchtime tweeted: “We are in a world of complacency where people just don’t care. Perhaps because the consequences for personal actions don’t attract the proper penalties.”
