Snowmobiling season is right around the corner, but transporting a snowmobile on top of a car is not the way to get the recreational vehicle where you want it to be. 

One Minnesota motorist driving a Toyota Corolla found that out the hard way. 

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, someone driving the small red car had a Polaris snowmobile strapped to the top of the car, with the skis of the snowmobile sticking out horizontally over the left side of the car. 

"Folks, don’t try this at home. Our State Patrol friends stopped this vehicle Sunday on US 63 in Polk County because this isn’t a safe way to transport a snowmobile," the Wisconsin DOT tweeted. "If you’re transporting equipment this winter, you are advised to safely haul it secured on a trailer or in a truck."

An average snowmobile weights approximately 476 pounds, which begs the question: how did they even get the snowmobile on top of the car?
