(Newser) – A word to the wise: Minivans are not moving vans. A state trooper in New Hampshire pulled over a vehicle that had furniture, bicycles, and boxes strapped to the roof and a wheeled basket dangling over the back window, per the AP. There was also a furniture dolly hanging against a driver's side window.

All in all, the items on the roof doubled the height of the van, which was pulled over going north on Interstate 93 near Londonderry. State police posted a picture of the van on Facebook after ticketing the driver for negligent driving and having an uninspected vehicle. They say the number of items on the van constituted a hazard.
