Last weekend, a Chongqing taxi driver with places to go tried to speed right through a section of the road blocked off because of wet cement. Much to his surprise, he didn’t get very far.
According to Sina, witnesses report seeing the taxi driving erratically up the road and then crashing straight through signs warning drivers about the not-yet-dry concrete.
Once stuck, the driver had to turn to police for help before his ride was set into the road for good. Officers were nice enough to help him out, hopefully they also gave him a few driving tips in the process.
That’s another lesson learned.
