Man caught painting new direction arrows to speed up his commute

Man caught painting new direction arrows to speed up his commute”

The 28-year-old man, surnamed Cai, made a decision to paint some additional arrows on the road in order to speed up his morning commute.

But one fed-up commuter in China decided enough was enough and took matters into his own hands - and copped a hefty fine for it.

In May, a driver in eastern Zhejiang was fined after surveillance footage captured him drawing his own parking space with chalk on a road.

The man, known as Cai, was caught out on CCTV carrying a can of white paint and walking into the middle of the busy intersection in the Chinese city of Lianyugang, Shanghaiist reports.

The road has since been repainted and is back to normal. Cars can be seen following the new directions as Cai continued to paint.

The 28-year-old man was fined 1,000 yuan which equals roughly $150 for his unappreciated art project in the city of Lianyungang Jiangsu province

Cai Zhi Gang, 28, was often stuck in a traffic jam while taking the bus home, Sina.com reported.

Unfortunately for Mr Cai he was caught by security cameras executing his genius plan and he was slapped with a $200 fine.

It is claimed he then said: "I thought changing the signs would make my commute smoother".

Authorities later told road maintenance workers to remove the new signs painted by Cai and restore the road to as it was before the young man's handiwork.

"Considering that you are still young and quite honest, we won't detain you this time, understand?" a policeman told Cai in the video.
