In Shaanxi province, China, road crews wanted to be safe while repairing a highway. Fair enough. But building a five-foot tall barrier across the road, without any advance warning, appears to have been a less-than-ideal solution.  Just ask the dozens of drivers who slammed into it.

Wouldn’t drivers get the clue after they saw the first few cars?  Not if the road crews kept rebuilding the wall, each time someone smashed into it.  Where are the warning lights?  The road crew says someone keeps stealing them.

The speed limit on this stretch of road is said to be 70 mph.  As they say in legal circles, “lawsuits are pending.”   (Photo source: Orange News)
