A 53-year-old German woman who was driving her dead mother across country to save on mortuary transportation costs was fined by police for disturbing a dead person's peace.

"You're not allowed to transport dead people in your private car," said Ralf Schomisch, police spokesman in Koblenz, where the car was found after a tip-off from a mortuary.

"The corpse was on the back seat without a seat belt, which in this case didn't really matter. But it was covered up with clothing. It is a misdemeanour."

He said the woman, who was not identified, was charged with violating burial laws and disturbing a dead person's peace.

She would face a modest fine, Mr Schomisch said.

The woman had already driven 450km after picking up the body from a mortuary in the northern city of Bremerhaven.

She wanted to bury her mother, who died of natural causes aged 90, in her hometown Daun.

On the bright side, it was probably the first time she ever took a nag-free, peaceful ride with her mom.
