Van driver tricks Chinese traffic cops by drawing his own parking spot

Finding a parking spot can be a pain in any city, but a driver in eastern China has come up with a novel idea to get around the problem – he paints one himself.

Local traffic cops had noticed the strange markings while on patrol. Compared with legitimate lines, the chalked ones were too thin and incomplete.

Surveillance video later obtained by police shows a goods van parked on the side of the road on Monday afternoon. Later a man wearing an orange shirt gets out of the van and appears to be drawing something on the road.  The van was parked in the same spot for four days.

The man has been identified and now has to pay a fine between $72 to $720 dollars.
