    That awkward moment when a convoy of six US howitzers was stopped in due to multiple irregularities during transport.

    Observe Traffic Regulations

    According to the police statement, a convoy of six US howitzers was stopped this week while travelling through Germany’s eastern state of Saxony after local traffic police found multiple irregularities in how they were being transported.

    The police said the vehicles were too wide, too heavy and overloaded by some 16 tons, while long-haul drivers failed to observe the proper sleep and driving routine.
