Montreal police attempt to ticket car made of snow

They left a note on the auto saying "you made our night!"

A Montreal artist and machinist who made a vehicle out of snow that resembles a Toyota Supra or Delorean DMC-12 had some harmless fun when the snow installation fooled the local police, who pulled over and were photographed approaching the auto, apparently believing it was real and parked illegally.

Laprise said it took him four hours to build the vehicle, according to the New York Daily News.

Laprise said that getting the attention of police was an added bonus, as he had only planned to trick the snow removal team.

The snow auto looked real enough that when police came around to look for cars parked on that side of the road during a snow plowing hours, they wrote a ticket and left it on a windshield made of snow. They left a note which read, "You made our night!" He even included a real windshield wiper he found on the street.

A playful yet hard-working resident in the north of Montreal decided on a winter project created to confuse ticket-wielding parking enforcement officers of the city, and it seemed to have worked.

"I intend to continue doing so", Laprise said.
