Texas - A Texas sheriff recently stopped a bakkie driver for driving with a hotdog on his rear bumper.

The driver had been driving with the hotdog on his bumper for nearly 200km.

Here's what the sherrif said...

The sherrif said: "I pulled over a vehicle earlier for a traffic violation on FM 2126. Due to the fact that I was facing the sun as it was setting, I could not read the license plate right away."

"So, I get out my patrol car to get a better look at the plate, and lo and behold, there is a hot dog on the rear bumper of the vehicle, with a handwritten note saying 'free hotdog' with an arrow pointing to the uneaten hot dog."

"Naturally, my curiosity is raised at this point, and I make contact with the driver. I advised the driver of his traffic violation, and then inquired about his rear bumper."

After being stopped, the driver said: "Funny story actually, I spent the day in Waco and had some hot dogs for lunch. 

"I set one on the rear bumper and somehow forgot about it and continued running errands around Waco. 

"It wasn't until several people asked about the hot dog, at several different locations, that I realized I had left it on there, so I put a little note on the bumper."
