A motorcyclist brought traffic to a standstill on one of Madrid's busiest roads after he pulled over to look for his false teeth, which flew out of his mouth when he sneezed, according to reports.
Two police officers approached the motorcyclist and ordered him to resume his journey for his own safety and that of other drivers on the Spanish capital's M-30 highway, Europa Press reported.
The middle-aged South American man complied - but it is not known if he found his dentures.
