Police in Friedrichsthal, Germany, nabbed the man who owns this office-on-wheels: A laptop, a printer, a voltage converter, two mobile phones, a navigation system, a GPS receiver, and many empty water bottles.

The man was caught for speeding, writes Der Spiegel. No one could prove that he actually was multitasking while driving. Result: A 120 eur  ($152) ticket for speeding and “driving with unsecured cargo.”

Come to think of it, some U.S. police cruisers are similarly equipped.

The multitasker’s car is a Ford Mondeo.
