Bribie Island Police were left stunned recently when they pulled over a driver who had his door held shut with a piece of rope.

The car was one of 11 ­defective vehicles stopped by Bribie Island police from August 18 to August 25.

Bribie Island Police ­station officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Dave Crawford-Raby said the car was pulled over in Bellara on August 18 after an officer ­noticed the driver’s door moving.

“In this instance the door was actually held closed by a piece of rope,” Sgt Crawford-Raby said.

“The rope went across to the other side of the car and my officers saw the door moving because it wasn’t ­secured properly.”

The driver, a 46-year-old man from Bellara, was fined $117 and his car pulled off the road.
