A truck driver in Burnaby was given a hefty fine and had their vehicle towed on Wednesday after police discovered a block of wood being used in place of a passenger seat.

On Twitter, Burnaby RCMP said the discovery was made during a commercial motor vehicle stop in South Burnaby.

And beyond the block of wood where the seat should have been was the fact that it was actually being used by the truck driver’s passenger.

As a result, the driver was ticketed for a total of five violations, resulting in a fine of $1,018.

As for the truck? It was “placed out of service and towed,” police said.
