Truck with Cardboard Windshield Goes 400 Miles
Posted on December 11, 2009
Chinese traffic officers on Jinggang’ao Highway in Henan province spotted a DIY disaster recently when they came across a truck sporting a cardboard windshield complete with the blue-faced driver poking his head out of the side window.
When questioned by the officers, the driver revealed that he had been using this tactic on busy roads for around 400 miles.
This despite the fact that the weather was freezing cold outside.
The driver did point out that he got a chance to rest his cold face and neck, usually on streets with less traffic.
In such cases, he used the two eye-holes cut-outs on the cardboard to double check the road.
He told the officers that the windshield had been broken in an accident from a few days back. However, he was too busy with his deliveries to fix this particular glitch.
His homemade solution did not impress the authorities. In fact, the police dropped him off at the nearest repair shop and made him fix his truck.
