Big Christmas trees are a lot of fun to decorate, but you need to make some special preparations to actually transport them around and get them home.

This person clearly wasn't prepared, simply putting the tree on the back of their Prius and hoping for the best!

Unfortunately for this person, the cops happened to spot them driving along and pulled them over, sharing a photo of the scene on Facebook to remind people to be careful when transporting Christmas trees.

We would have hoped that nobody would be this stupid, but sadly this story proves us wrong."One of our officer's stopped this vehicle on Route 20 today," the copsĀ  wrote on Facebook.

The tree is clearly blocking the mirrors and windows of the vehicle and probably wasn't even tied down correctly.

Have you got your tree yet?
