The dozy motorist was behind the wheel of a Hyundai when he was stopped by stunned officers on the M6 near
Officers found the driver had crammed two £210 Pax wardrobes into the car which were obscuring more than half the windscreen.
The driver told officers from the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) he was making a return journey from the nearby Ikea store in Wednesbury.
He was fined and received penalty points on his driving licence.
CMPG posted pictures of the car on Twitter, and said: ‘Do you pay for @Ikea delivery or endanger other road users through your lack of driving view…
‘Tough decision for some, in this case the delivery would of been considerably cheaper than the fine & points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition, M6 south J6.’
