SUDBURY, Mass. — Police have gone to Facebook to remind residents to transport their Christmas trees responsibly.
This after they stopped this vehicle on Route 20 last Friday. The tree was draped over the vehicle making it almost impossible to see in any of the windows.
Comments on the post compared the tree to the Christmas tree in the movie, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. In the 1989 movie, the Griswolds find the perfect (massive) tree after hiking deep into the forest and have to transport the tree home on top of their station wagon.
By Tuesday morning, the post was shared more than 1,500 times.
There is no word on whether the driver received a summons.
