Doofus Of The Day #602

Today's award goes to an unpopular driver in Poland.

Disgruntled neighbours of joyrider Zbigniew Filo sought to put his driving days behind him when they somehow hoisted his souped-up vehicle atop a tree.

Filo, 24, awoke to find his car missing, later locating it on top of a huge willow tree in Lubczyna, Poland.

Locals have maintained a code of silence over who was responsible for the prank or how indeed the white Ford Escort ended up 20ft in the air, though one villager revealed that a crane had been borrowed for the night.

Police spokesman Marta Pierko said: 'We received a call from a man saying his car was stuck in a tree, and that his neighbours had put it there.

'After inspecting the site we instructed him to remove it from the tree.'

. . .

The Pole, who doesn’t even have a licence, has promised to be more considerate in his driving in future.

'I get the message,' he said. 'But I think it was a bit harsh.'

You've got to love the way the police told the car's owner to remove it from the tree, even though they knew perfectly well he hadn't put it there!  It makes you wonder whether he'd had a few run-ins with the local law before . . . and, for that matter, whether the cops had helped to put it up there!  (Do Polish police have cranes at their disposal, perhaps to help at the scene of an accident?)

Who needs the police? Looks like the neighbors have it covered...
