A truck driver travelling across the border between Anhui and Jiangxi provinces incurred the wrath of the local traffic police after taking his banged up vehicle with no front wheels onto a busy highway.
According to NetEase, a few days ago officers spotted the truck swaying and wobbling as it proceeded down the highway at speed. Concerned that it would cause an accident, they moved in to intercept the vehicle and get it off the road.
Reports say that the driver took his truck onto the highway after being involved in a traffic accident a few days earlier. Determined to get his vehicle back home to Jiangxi where he could save money on repairs, he made the foolish decision to attempt to drive it home.
The lack of front wheels left the truck with almost no ability to steer or brake. Police were said to be incredulous at the man’s brazen attempt to drive such a badly damaged vehicle at high speed.
Police proceeded to scold the driver for his actions, telling him that he was very likely to cause an accident if he took his truck any further down the highway. Sources say that the driver was punished, but do not stipulate exactly what this entailed.
If he was allowed to keep his licence, it definitely wasn’t enough of a punishment.
