Montrealer makes fake car out of snow to confuse police

Simon Laprise used snow from outside his home to create a replica of a DeLorean DMC-12, WGCL reported.

The results were very good. good enough to fool police, who arrived with the intent to ticket what they thought was an illegally parked vehicle.

Simon Laprise created a life-sized auto out of snow after a recent heavy snowfall in his part of town. The final detail that made it so life-like was the Laprise's incorporation of an actual windshield, which he found across the street.

He posted a picture of the confused cop standing next to his auto - made to look like a DeLorean from Back to the Future.

Well, it does if you're 33-year-old Montreal machinist and artist Simon Laprise of L.S.D.




Simon Laprise, a 33-year-old artist and machinist, crafted the auto with snow outside his home on "a lovely day" earlier this week.

The result? A delightful picture of a lone police officer, staring skeptically at a vehicle parked in a snow removal zone, ticket book in hand.

"You made our evening", the officer wrote, in French, on a ticket posted by Laprise.

Laprise, a 33-year-old machinist, still got a ticket - but it was fake just like his auto.

According to local media, snow ploughs destroyed the sculpture the next morning.
