In a bizarre moment, a Florida woman used her MINI Cooper to transport a large sofa across a bridge on Monday.
The unidentified woman was captured on video by fellow travelers using the small convertible to tow a large white sofa across the Estero Community Bridge in Lee County, Florida.
The woman had rested the bench diagonally across the car, and the only thing that kept him safe was her right hand holding one of the support beams as she drove down the road with one hand.
“It’s a terrible idea,” Florida Highway Patrol Lieutenant Greg Bueno said NBC 2. “The sofa itself is bigger than the MINI Cooper.”

“It’s just too big an object to put on top of a MINI Cooper.”
It is unclear whether the woman was arrested and ticketed for the illegal act.
The lieutenant cited many reasons why drivers should not consider following in this woman’s footsteps, including the couch that is not properly fastened – fastened only with her hand, and it obscures her view of the right-hand mirror and passing vehicles. She also drives on a busy highway.
The Estero Community Bridge straddles Interstate 75, putting drivers below at risk if she lost control of the object.
Daily Mail contacted Lee County Sheriff’s Office and Florida State Highway Patrol, but did not hear back before publication.
“The bench itself is bigger than the MINI Cooper,” Florida Highway Patrol Lieutenant Greg Bueno said. The officer advises drivers to avoid the situation as it is dangerous for everyone on the road

The bank posed a danger to all drivers if the Florida woman lost control of the object
While it is legal to attach a sofa to the car roof or in the back of a truck bed, it can still be dangerous.
A Florida couple driving on Interstate 95 from Boca Raton was awarded a $166 ticket in March for not “driving in one lane” after a sofa fell off the car in front of them.
The flying bank meant they had little time to get out of the way, causing them to flip over the median, according to the median. Sun-Sentinel.
The couple suffered minor injuries. The driver who dropped the sofa drove off.
