Berlin: While police across the world struggle to curb the use of mobile phones while driving, they now have a bigger challenge at hand.

Police in Germany recently caught a driver who had turned his Ford station wagon into a mobile office.

According to news agency AP, Saarland state police said the 35-year-old man was stopped last Monday for driving his car at a speed of 130 kmph while the limit in the zone was set at 100 kmph.

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 cellphone mounted to the windshield completed the array, AP reported.

Since there was no evidence he used the office while moving, he got away with a EUR 120 (USD 153) speeding ticket and a possible fine for having unsecured items in his car.
