GN - This is the moment a man recklessly drove with another car precariously balanced on his roof.  Glyndwr Wyn Richards drove silver Volkswagen Passat with a Skoda Octavia perched on top. Richards, 51, was caught on camera driving at the Glan yr Afon industrial estate in Aberystwyth on March 26.  He told magistrates in the Welsh town it was a ‘stupid thing to do’ but he had only taken it 300 yards at five-miles-per-hour. Richards, of Llanfarian, said he had worked as a mechanic and was helping a friend get rid of the car.  CCTV grab of the hilarious moment a man was caught driving a car - with another car on top.

While the inspector recognised there was a van following the car to provide protection for other cars, there were still cars driving in other directions.

Richards, who represented himself, added that the top car had been strapped down and that the stability had been tested by lifting the cars with a forklift truck.

 He has now been slapped with three penalty points on his licence after he admitted driving a vehicle in a condition likely to cause danger or injury.

Richards was also fined £80 and ordered to pay £105 costs. CCTV grab of the hilarious moment a man was caught driving a car - with another car on top.

A spokeswoman from Dyfed-Powys Police said: ‘Transporting vehicles should only be done via specialist trailers with sufficient straps to fully secure the load to all corners.

‘Also extra entitlement may be needed on driving licences if the test was passed after 1997.’ Magistrates could have banned Richards from driving but they said that his lack of any previous convictions meant a disqualification would be excessive.
