It is rather surreal and unbelievable that this man in China could actually even get these trucks stacked this way, let alone drive on the highway with them.
The officers of the Chinese Highway Patrol pulled over the driver and gave him only a ticket and fine for “overloading” his vehicle.
Here in the states he would have gotten his own reality TV show!
The man claims he was only trying to save money on transportation costs, but his plan didn’t work out too well.
After he received a $30 (200 yuan) fine and gained a one-point penalty on his driving license, he was then ordered to ship the trucks individually to their destination.
The pictures of the stacked vehicles went viral since CCTV uploaded them to it’s official Weibo social media account.
The reaction has been mixed, from shock to pure amusement…to aghast that he would only receive a small fine.
One poster described it as a “a ménage à trucks”.
Another thought the punishment was too light: “Only one penalty point for endangering other people’s lives on highway?”
China is no stranger to “creative” solutions to shipping large vehicles.
Last November, two small trucks were found loaded with two smaller trucks on the top on a highway in Anhui province. The driver ended up being fined for violating the weight and height limit for highway vehicles.
It seems from the translation that it was not so much the stacking in China as it was they were stacked too high!
“Curiously, the two cars which were laden minivan also a mini-van, like a pyramid, like, serious overloading, high. Police stopped it immediately, ordered the driver to unload transport, and the corresponding penalties.”
Since the beginning of time, man has had a creative mind. Not exactly sure how these guys in China even got out of the driveway, let alone down the highway, but kudos for trying! lol
Much easier in a video game!
