Bumper car seized after Chinese woman drives it on roads
A Chinese woman taking a bumper car for a spin was pulled over, ending her trip with the vehicle being seized.
The 50-year-old woman owns a bumper car shop in the city, according to Chinese news portal hangzhou.com.cn.
Perhaps she fancied herself ingenious for driving the bumper car all the way to the shop — she had done so multiple times and had already received several warnings from officers.
Besides using an unlicensed vehicle, a video that went viral on Chinese social media shows the woman blatantly flouting traffic rules, zooming across three lanes on a highway in Guiyang, Guizhou Province.
Officers stopped her and seized the bright pink car.
In 2016, two men from Shenyang, Liaoning caught Weibo netizens’ attention when both were stopped at a traffic light in bumper cars.
Though netizens were amused and hoped to try the same stunt, authorities dashed the act as “dangerous.” Niña V. Guno/JB
