16th May 2010, Comments 0 comments

German police said Sunday they had stopped a wheelchair-bound man as he attempted to join a busy motorway near Frankfurt, saying it was the quickest way for him to get home.

The 45-year-old was stopped on Friday on the slip road of the A661, just before he reached the main motorway lane, police said.

"Asked what he was doing, he admitted that he was on his way home and that the motorway was the quickest way. Despite this impeccable logic, the man was prevented from going any further," police in Frankfurt, western Germany, said.
