Driver screws the system, draws his own parking space

funny shit 01/05/2017

A Chinese man's found a cheeky solution to his city's lack of parking spaces - paint his own.

Traffic cops in Jinhua, Zhejiang were confused when they found strange markings spraypainted on the road, the Qianjiang Evening News reported.

They didn't appear to be legitimate parking spaces - too thin and messy - so decided to check out surveillance footage of the area.

In it they saw a man wearing an orange shirt park his van, get out and paint the markings himself.

He'd gotten away with it for four days before police swooped in. He now faces a fine between $100 and $1000, the paper reported.
