German police stop man with mobile office in car

BERLIN: 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 kph in a 100-kph 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 cell phone mounted to the windshield completed the array.
Since there was no evidence he used the office while moving, he got away with a $ 153 speeding ticket and a possible fine for having unsecured items in his car.
