It seems that one Ontario driver's attempt to get creative this week didn't pay off. 

According to Halton Regional Police, one driver got their car towed after it was discovered that they weren't driving in a proper seat. 

In fact, officers were quick to discover that the driver was actually using a folding lawn chair to get around town.

In photos that were posted on Twitter, the rickety black chair can be seen sitting in a hole where the normal driver's chair should be. 

Where did the proper seat go? Officers don't seem to give an explanation. 

However, police were quick to deem the car unfit for the road when they discovered it on Appleby Line.  

Since the discovery, licence plates have been removed and the car was towed.

The driver will also appear in court for "unsafe vehicle and seatbelt inoperative."
