A MOTORIST has been fined and issued penalty points on his licence because his van was so messy that "it was dangerous" to drive.
Thames Valley Police stopped the van driver in Marlow, south Buckinghamshire earlier this week.
The force shared an image of the vehicle's cab on Twitter, showing a large collection litter including take-away bags from McDonald's and Greggs, drinks containers and even a large twig strewn across the floor.
They wrote: "Stopped this in Marlow today. A tidy cab = A tidy mind.
"This was so bad it was dangerous, rubbish under floor pedals.
"Points on licence and fine. Driver was arrested for an unconnected matter."

The post has since attracted hundreds of comments from horrified users who said the untidy scene made their "skin crawl" and gave them "palpatations".
One wrote: "How can anyone actually drive like this? Madness".
Another joked: "I will never criticise the state of my wife’s car again!"
