NSW Police have cautioned a driver who they spotted with more than 60 Coles Stikeez collectables stuck to their car windscreen.
Sharing an image of the car with the mini figurines stuck all over the passenger side of the front windscreen on Facebook, NSW Traffic and Highway Patrol Command used the post to highlight the importance of driving with an unobstructed view.
The caption read: 'It's always important to have a clear view out of the car. 'Stikeez' are not meant for the windscreen.’
Soon after posting the image, the driver was slammed by fellow motorists - with one calling the Stikeez windscreen ‘disgraceful’.
'A CLEAR WINDSCREEN IS VITAL FOR SAFE DRIVING! This is absolutely disgraceful!' wrote one. Added another: 'There seems to be no sign of intelligent life anywhere.’
However in an unbelievable twist, others revealed that THEY TOO stuck their Stikeez on their windscreens - revealing a bizarre new trend that is sure to upset police.
'OMG I started doing that and they melted in the heat,’ wrote one. Added another: ’All mine melted, they look so sad now.’
Said a third: ‘What do they mean they're not for the windscreen??'
The post has attracted almost 10,000 comments and 1,500 shares - however it’s not clear whether the driver in question was fined by police.
The new scandal comes as Stikeez collectors scrounge around the country looking for an elusive Golden Billy Banana mini. Coles only released 100 of the rare Stikeez, prompting those who’d found one to sell them on eBay for huge amounts - with three auctions attracting bids of more than $85k.
Today it was revealed that one Victorian store had a higher probability of having the elusive golden mini available to shoppers - click here for more!
