It's not every day you see a man towing a car… on a tricycle! That is just what commuters in China saw when a man towed a sedan on the back of his motorized tricycle.

Surprised drivers were aghast at the risky method of towing the man employed and some even filmed the comical scene on their cell phones. Somehow, the cyclist managed to get the sedan on the cargo compartment and towed it merrily down the highway. Police caught the man who told them he had recently purchased the car and was trying to take it to a scrapyard in order to sell parts of the car.

He obviously put some serious thought into how he was going to tow the vehicle which is much larger than his tricycle. He even accounted for the extra weight in the front of the car from the motor which is why more of the back end of the car is hanging off than the front.

The man was fined $200 dollars and received 9 points on his license. If you aren't aware, China uses a "Social credit system" that keeps a tally of everything a Chinese citizen does and if a person earns too high of a score they are banned from flying, buying a home, or securing loans.

He improvised … and it cost him big.

$200 is a months salary in his country for too many people.

I have seen shit that's unbelievable in my trips to China. This is a little out there but goes in line with normal operating procedures over there.

I saw a small truck hauling at least 40' long rebar in a bundle about 3' in diameter with the rear end dragging on the highway and the front end bouncing up and down 10' from bouncing off the ground. they were next to us on a 8 lane highway till they rammed the rebar thru the rear window of a bus. And there was the baby crawling across a similar highway with the traffic just blasting the horn at the child and swerving around with no one seemingly worried about the infant! I could go on, China is a crazy place compared to the US and the Chinese are good at improvising to get the job done with whatever tools available.

Search Chinese scaffolding once, they believe in the strength of bamboo and lashings with their lives. LOL

@28105 I thought the same at first but when you see the multiple angles you'll see it is real. There is only the one angle that seems faked and it is because the cars tires are flat and holding the same shape they had when the car was on flat ground.
