Garbage transport is important.

However, if you are simply too lazy to clean up your car, you endanger yourself and others - like the driver of a completely littered VW.

Keep your eyes open on the road!

This applies above all and especially to patrol officers who discover and check many anomalies - be it drunk people at the wheel, such as a driver who fell asleep at the wheel with five per thousand, or individual technical solutions such as this original BMW caravan.

Noise machines like this Porsche are also always a case for law enforcement officers - and vehicles that are full of rubbish, of which this Ford is a particularly splendid example.

The latter was on the road in England, but a recent case from Neubrandenburg shows that cars from Germany, which is supposedly so clean, can also become bad Messi vehicles.

There, officials stopped a VW Caddy that was "apparently packed with rubbish and rubbish, so that the driver's view was severely impaired," informs the local police inspection: "The driver's area was also full of cigarette butts, notes, packaging materials and returnable bottles, so that the As a result, only a third of the driver's field of vision was free".

Only the driver's seat was still free - after all.

The ten ugliest cars of all time: manufacturers' design sins

10th place: Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

The first generations of the A-Class were anything but beautiful.

Since 2012, however, the compact car has been impressive.

Nevertheless, the A-Class will soon be phased out.

9th place: Audi A2.

Of course, the A2 should not be missing in this ranking.

Here the benefit clearly took precedence over the design.

With a drag coefficient of 0.252, the compact car can easily keep up with modern electric vehicles.

And the Audi A2 was way ahead of its time in other respects, too.

Probably a bit too far, because in 2005 production was stopped after six years.

In the meantime, the Ingolstadt native enjoys cult status.

8th place: Chrysler PT Cruiser.

The compact car was also available as a convertible.

With its long bonnet, the PT Cruiser is visually reminiscent of the cars of the 1920s and 1930s.

In 2010, after ten years of construction and a facelift, it was over.

7th place: Ford Edsel Villager.

At the end of the 1950s, the Ford Motor Company introduced the subsidiary brand Edsel.

From 1958, this went with the Villager, among other things, to catch customers.

However, the brand and its models were not really popular at the time.

But that was much more due to the unusually high oval radiator grille, which reminded some critics of a toilet seat.

After three years it was over with Edsel and the Villager.

An expensive flop for Ford that almost caused the US auto giant to collapse.

An Alfa Romeo SZ. 6th place: Alfa Romeo SZ.

Not pretty, but expensive.

The Alfa Romeo SZ cost an incredible DM 100,000 (approx. EUR 51,129) in the early 1990s.

The sports car was also limited to 1,000 units.

Did the Italians know that the sports car wasn't particularly successful?

Pontiac AztekSquare 5: Pontiac Aztek.

From 2001 to 2005, Pontiac built this "beauty".

After all, the crossover SUV sold around 1,115,000 times.

The Aztek also achieved particular fame through the TV series "Breaking Bad", in which it is driven by the main character Walter White.

However, the SUV gets damaged in every episode.

SsangYong Rodius4th place: SsangYong Rodius.

It wasn't quite enough for the Korean to get on the podium.

The same also applies to an independent design.

The cooler is somewhat reminiscent of the PT Cruiser, while the rear was borrowed from Mercedes.

An idea that you probably only had when the car was already finished, because it looks like it was added later.

Nevertheless, the van was built in two generations from 2004 to 2019.

Nissan S-Cargo3rd place: Nissan S-Cargo.

What looks like a model car for children was actually built by Nissan from 1989 to 1992.

Only the designers and managers of the Asian car manufacturer know exactly why.


A Commuter Tango T600. 2nd place: No, that's not an optical illusion.

Commuter Cars' Tang T600 is in fact only 99 centimeters wide.

What may help when looking for a parking space looks as if a Smart had been washed too hot or a minivan saved from the scrap press.

But the design isn't the Tango T600's only problem.

A staggering $121,000 is due for the small electric car.

But you also get 600 kW of power.

Fiat MultiplaRank 1: Fiat Multiple.

The victory clearly goes to the Italian.

Although Fiat tried to save the model with a facelift, it didn't really make the van more beautiful.

In 2010, the Multipla was discontinued after eleven years.

The question remains: How could this design ever hit the streets?

VW Caddy is overflowing with rubbish: a fine is imminent

Inevitably, the police officers acted as waste sorters and helped the 68-year-old to remove three sacks filled with rubbish from the front area so that it was possible to continue driving reasonably safely.

However, accompanied by the patrol vehicle and straight home.

There the man can then wait for a criminal complaint under Section 23 StVO (“Other obligations of vehicle drivers”), since the van’s vision, steering and thus road safety were restricted.

There is a risk of a fine of 80 euros and a point in Flensburg.
