Chinese highway tolls hit international headlines a few months ago when a man from Henan was sentenced to life in prison for impersonating the military and evading more than $550,000 in fees. Things got more complicated with the firestorm of online controversy that followed. I think we can safely say that most people hate tolls, and those who do business on the roads sometimes use desperate measures to avoid them. Enter the Pyramid Truck! Three gigantic lorries stacked on top of one another to save on gas and toll fees.
The trucks are anything but legal (they exceed pretty much every safety regulation known to man), and the most obvious problem with this scheme is that it’s so enormous and eye-catching that they can’t possibly get away with it for long.
