The photo of the white vehicle shows a jam-packed interior filled to the roof with Amazon boxes, packages, and plastic bags and fit for an episode of Hoarders on wheels.
Photos shared by police show items pressing against the windshield of the vehicle, with a small area where the driver would have to peak over a line of packages to see the road.
Police say the vehicle had "numerous [Highway Traffic Act] offences," including "no clear view to front, no clear view to right, drive while crowded and more."
