German police stop man with mobile office in car

In this photo made available by the Saarland State Police in Germany on Friday Nov. 16, 2012,  shows a vehicle with its  interior wired up like a mobile office, that Saarland State police stopped on the autobahn near Saarbruecken Germany on Monday Nov. 12, 2012. Forget texting while driving. German police say they nabbed a driver who had wired his Ford station wagon with an entire mobile office.  Saarland state police said Friday the 35-year-old man was pulled over for doing 130 km/h (81 mph) in a 100 km/h (62 mph) zone while passing a truck Monday.  Built on a wooden frame on his passenger seat they found a laptop on a docking station tilted for easy driver access, a printer, router, wireless internet stick, WLAN antenna, and an inverter to power it all. A navigation system and cellphone mounted to the windshield completed the array.  Since there wasn’t evidence he used the office while moving, he got away with a euro120 ($153) speeding ticket and possible fine for having unsecured items in his car.
