After missing his exit a while back a trucker was caught on surveillance camera late one night earlier this month reversing his tractor trailer on the Beijing-Shanghai Expressway, getting out of the vehicle to tear down the guardrail in the median and then executing a sharp U-turn across four lanes.
Turns out, you’re not supposed to do this. Who coulda known? For his crime, the trucker has been fined a grand total of 200 RMB ($29), and had 12 points deducted from his license. For drivers, China has a ” 12-point system” where if you lose all 12 points in a year you have to retake your driving class and exam. At least now he’ll be prepared in case this comes up on the test.

We had no idea guardrails were so easy to take down. Learn something new everyday.
