Police in Nottinghamshire stopped a man for an “absolutely outrageous” offence after he was spotted driving a Renault Scenic with a missing passenger-side front tyre. Officers said it was ‘quite unbelievable’ that the vehicle was still moving with three wheels.
Nottinghamshire Police said concerned members of the public reported the motorist after being seen driving around the Ollerton area in the damaged Renault.
On its Facebook page, Nottinghamshire Roads Policing Unit said :
“This car was seen driving in the Ollerton area and reported to us by concerned members of the public. When we heard the radio transmission of a car being driven without a wheel we made our way over.
“Response officers spotted it first and got it to stop. How it was still moving was quite unbelievable. Even more unbelievable was how far the driver thought he was going to get in it.
“We then informed him that he wasn’t going anywhere in it. The car was prohibited and the driver reported for the offence. Absolutely outrageous.”
