In no time, a police officer approached the "vehicle", only to find upon a close inspection that the auto was all made of snow.
A Canadian prankster made a auto out of snow so real it fooled the local police who thought it was an illegally parked vehicle.
Laprise said on his Facebook page that the two police officers also paid him a visit the next morning - not to press charges, but just to figure out the mastermind behind the prank.
Instead, they left a paper, not a ticket, that reads "You made our night", in French. He even included a real windshield wiper he found on the street.
The snow vehicle looked real enough that when police came around to look for cars parked on that side of the road during a snow plowing hours, they wrote a ticket and left it on a windshield made of snow.
Laprise shared pictures of the snow vehicle on his Laprise Simon Designs Facebook page. "So I made a decision to do something out of the mountain of snow, to do a little joke to the snow guys, and have fun sculpting a vehicle".
The 33-year-old machinist's prank was reportedly plowed clean by Montreal sanitation workers the next day but not before it gave police a amusing story to tell this winter.
"I intend to continue doing so", Laprise said.
