The van, which had items stacked several feet high on the roof, was carrying items such as a bike, a ladder, a cart and a television, which was dangling off the driver’s side of the pile at the time of the photograph.

The photos show the inside of the van was also filled with items, which appear to be blocking the driver’s ability to see out the rear window.

It is unclear if the driver was cited after the traffic stop.
