Police let a man off for towing a caravan on a motorway with a tractor

The German pensioner was on the motorway in a vehicle that could only do a maximum speed of 30kph...

Police near Tours were called out to the A85 motorway after sightings of a tractor towing a caravan on the motorway.  The tractor was travelling at a speed of 30 km/h.

The police were surprisingly lenient on the German retiree, saying on a Facebook post that they had escorted him off the motorway, and then had let the “adventurous grandad continue his trip!”.

It would have been a different story had the slow moving vehicles caused an accident.
