Awesome way to ride a bike

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Police officers in the Dutch city of Alkmaar were surprised to see a car passing by with a man sitting on a bicycle on its roof.

The driver and his wife, when stopped by the police, said they heard a noise while waiting at a traffic light, but did not realize they were taking on an extra passenger.

The 26 year-old man who took the free ride was fined for public drunkenness, not carrying an identity card and providing a false identity to the police

Thats pretty funny. Although, pretty dangerous to. What if they had stopped abruptly? The guy would have been flung way off the roof, maybe run over.

It didn't sound like that was too much a concern for him. He just wanted the free ride
