It’s estimated that around three metres of wood is protruding from the car as the shopper attempts to drive, posing an obvious risk to other motorists.
The act was captured on film by a passing motorist, who had come to a standstill in the Bunnings carpark as the driver attempted to move their car without hitting other vehicles with the pieces of wood.
In its post, Sydney Name and Shame noted that the driver was taking “stupidity to the next level”.
Facebook users agreed, with many voicing their concerns about the risks posed to other drivers.
“I really hope the police stopped him before he killed someone,” said one.
Added another: “How the hell does he expect to drive on a street, road with that timber sticking out the WRONG side of the car?”
Wrote a third: “Are you serious?!”
Others could see the lighter side of it.
“She’ll be right!” said one.
Added another: “No room for a snag sandwich!”
