Neighbours of 24-year-old Zbigniew Filo were so angered by the boy racer's dreadful driving, they decided to teach him a lesson.
One of the villager's mobile cranes was borrowed and the Ford Escort placed in a willow tree, under the cover of darkness.
Police spokesman Marta Pierko said:
'We received a call from a man saying his car was stuck in a tree, and that his neighbours had put it there.
'After inspecting the site we instructed him to remove it from the tree.'
One local added: "Perhaps he'll think twice about his hair-raising driving and about getting a licence or who knows where his next car might end up.
There's not a week goes by in the local Sheriff Courts here without a few eastern Europeans, the majority Poles, being found guilty of driving without a licence, insurance and/or a current vehicle tax disc. It would seem it's acceptable behaviour in Poland.
Well done the local Polish police. Here our police would have wasted hours trying to discover who was responsible for rearranging the car's parking spot and would charge them with theft, damage of property, possibly trespass and other criminal behaviour. There's a lesson here not only for silly young unlicenced drivers.
