Fight Against Maturity

“There’s a bluebird cockatoo on my shoulder…”

He was stopped while doing 60mph in a 30mph zone in Augsburg, Germany. He faces dangerous driving charges.

A police spokesman said: “He should have had the bird in a cage, but when he was stopped it was flying around the car, and could easily have obscured his vision, causing an accident, or caused him to miss important signs like the one telling him to slow down.”
