A Sydney driver has been mocked and fined by police for his ridiculous attempt to transport a refrigerator through Sydney’s CBD.

The refrigerator was placed horizontally across the trunk of his car, on a thin blanket that was used to prevent the unit from damaging the paintwork.
An optimistic driver has been mocked by police officers for trying to transport a kitchen appliance in an unusual way
Officers from the NSW Traffic and Highway Patrol stopped the driver on Oxford Street near Sydney’s CBD after seeing a large refrigerator perched precariously over the trunk of his car
The creative driver then used two straps to secure the kitchen appliance through the open rear windows of the car.
“There are several ways to safely transport a refrigerator, and then there’s this man,” police wrote in a Facebook post.
“On inspection, the police discovered a poorly designed and dangerous arrangement for securing the cargo with the large refrigerator on the rear trunk of the Camry sedan.
“Police have made sure that the driver has made alternative arrangements to transport the refrigerator in another way before leaving the premises.”
According to the police, the brutal driver received a ticket for the unsafe load.

Officers reminded residents that dangerous loads posed a danger to other road users and pedestrians and asked if bulky items were properly covered or secured.
Unimpressed Facebook users took to the comments to criticize the driver’s peculiar transportation method, with some suggesting he deserved a harsher sentence.
“It only gets worse the more you look at it,” said one user.
“If you listen closely, you can hear the straps screaming for mercy,” another joked.
“Dude, I hope they took his license then and there,” commented a third user.
“I bet the fine is more than a rental car,” said another user.

However, other commentators said the driver should get a little more credit for his creativity.
“What a genius,” commented one man.
“Give him a little credit for the thought,” said another.
“The question is how far he traveled like that and how far he was from home. When he was almost home, give him some credit,” said one user.
“At least he protected his paint job,” another joked.
