'You are not a tank commander': Driver caught breaking bizarre road rule

Police in the US have pulled over a driver for bizarrely breaking a road rule.

Braintree Police in Massachusetts shared an image of the offence on Twitter and explained why they pulled the driver over.

“This afternoon (Thursday) a motorist was cited for driving with a sun shade over the window and was peering out the top,” police tweeted.

“No! You are not a tank commander! Do not attempt to drive with a sunshade still on the windshield!”

“Cops get to see people at their absolute stupidest,” one user tweeted.

“What if he is a vampire?” another suggested.
