48A AutomobilesFacts that motorist was observed driving east in center lane for westbound traffic on six-lane road with a 12-inch by 24-inch sheet of plywood covering driver’s side of windshield and, a few minutes after being stopped by patrolman, was again observed straddling lane divider and moving from side to side for passing cars constituted good cause to believe motorist was an incompetent driver.
