April 12 (UPI) -- A driver in Canada was charged by police after officers discovered his car's suspension had been replaced with wood and wire.

Police in Val-des-Monts, Quebec shared a photo of the 28-year-old driver's improvised suspension made using a wooden log and chicken wire tied together with a pin. Three of the tires on the vehicle showed "very advanced" signs of wear and tear.

"It was basically keeping the vehicle up," Sgt. Martin Fournel told the Ottawa Citizen about the makeshift suspension.

Officers also discovered the driver did not have proof of insurance and had an open beer in the front seat.

The driver was able to pass a sobriety test, but his vehicle was impounded for inspection and he was given a $481 ticket for open alcohol as well as additional tickets for safety infractions and lack of insurance.
