Commuters in China's Zhejiang province witnessed a bizarre sight on a busy road - a man transporting a precariously mounted sedan on a motorised tricycle.


The picture shows the car tied on the top of the vehicle horizontally. The motorised tricycle actually took the space of two lanes and shows the driver recklessly driving with no regard for lane discipline.

Many are wondering what could the reason behind this bizarre sight be. According to Shanghaiist, the driver is said to have bought the car for 800 yuan, which is already in a bad condition.

The driver, who was later tracked down by the police, said that he was taking the car to a junkyard to sell off its parts to earn some extra money. But unfortunately, he ended up losing a lot more since he was fined 1,300 yuan (approx 13,600 rs) by the police. Besides that, nine points were deducted from his driver's license

Bizarre sights like these on the roads of China are nothing new either. It was earlier reported that a father tied up his daughter on the back of his motorbike because she refused to get to school. He decided to make sure she attends her classes by tying her to the vehicle. The incident, which took place in Guandong Province on the street of Yunfu on April 23, has raised many eyebrows.

In the video, which was recorded by a passer-by, the girl was seen crying when her upper body was tied to the backseat of her father's bike with a rope. Her legs were dangling off from the vehicle

Crazy thing to do in China but that is not illegal in itself in the UK as it wouldn't come under and motor vehicle offences as it wouldn't be classed as a motor vehicle because it wasn't made or adapted for the use on a road, however if it could be proven that she used it every day for a period of time then it may be construed that that in itself classes it as 'adapted'.

It' would be the same for the 125,000 Mobility Scooters that are in use (or the likes of a 'fork lift') etc etc if they were regularly used on the road and not the pavement/off road.





It could be the offence of obstructing the highway.
