Meanwhile in China: Chinese Drivers Try to Chump Cops with Safety Belt T-Shirts

As in most parts of the world, wearing a seat belt is required in China as well, but some crafty minds have found a simple way to avoid being fined.

The solution is a simple white T-shirt, with a diagonally-printed black line starting from the left shoulder and ending just above the wearer’s left hip. The design perfectly mimics the position of an actual seat belt, and it is designed to fool police officers, which at a first glance, will think the driver is actually wearing his or her belt…

Meanwhile in China: Poor Girl Gets Whacked in the Head from a Truck’s Open Tailgate

As you can see from the security camera footage, the small truck slowly swerves around the two ladies and a man walking on the road, when the vehicle’s upper section of the rear metal gate opens and smacks one of the women on the head while narrowly missing the man walking in front of her.

The truck driver didn’t even notice it and continued ahead, but the woman dropped down. Here’s hoping that she wasn’t seriously injured…

Watch the Devastating Effects of a Truck’s Tire Exploding on a Taiwanese Highway

Most of the times, when we think of a tire problem, our mind automatically goes to a flat, which is indeed a routine problem that can be quickly fixed. This can be done either by pulling over to the side of the road and swapping it with a spare, or in the case you roll on run-flats, by driving to a nearby tire shop.

A flat is one thing, but a tire blowout or explosion is a completely different and much, much more dangerous scenario altogether, even more so when you’re talking about a large wheel on a heavy commercial vehicle.

Vilner Nissan GT-R Dragon-Themed

Vilner, the small Bulgarian aftermarket firm that could, has unleashed pictures of its newest creation based on the almighty Nissan GT-R that was custom built for a Chinese businessman with a large car collection.

The legendary creature, which in Chinese folklore symbolizes power and influence, among other things, is portrayed in a black and red design on the interior headliner and the inner side of the boot.

The same two colors are used on the rest of the cabin that was completely redone in black Alcantara and black carbon leather with red piping and stiching, from the dashboard to the door panels and the front and rear seats.

Furthermore, the redesigned steering wheel and gear shifter are adorned in carbon fiber accents, while certain parts inside such as the door trims and air vent surrounds are painted in chrome red.

On the outside, Vilner dressed the GT-R in a matte white foil wrap, while changes under the hood, which include a titanium exhaust system, are said to help increase the car’s output from “440whp” to “530whp”.

Meanwhile in China: 1 Truck with 18 on the back

In China, a lorry was filmed carrying a total of 18 trucks (!) spread out in two rows. Now that’s what we call being efficient – not to mention being a hazard for the rest of the road users…
