When Vienna advertising agency owner Niko Alm applied for a new driver's licence, he submitted a photo which showed him wearing a noodle mesh as head gear.
According to regulations, only the face must be visible on the photo, no hats, no caps allowed.

First authorities denied the driver's license, but after 3 Alm was now issued the document with the rather special ohoto.
