Transporting pipes, the Chinese way

A very interesting way of transporting a bunch of very long plastic pipes, seen on a highway near the great city of Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province. The JAC truck is less than half as long as the goods. No problem in China, a bit of rope will fix that fine!

Transporting pipes, the Chinese way

Going around the highway with pipes like this is officially very forbidden in China, but in reality nobody cares. The basic idea is: ‘as long as it doesn’t crash, it is not that dangerous’. Wise we say… A few other notable Chinese ways of transporting things: 26 Volkswagens, a big tree, pigs, tricycles, a gas tank, trucks, 12 bags of rice, a minivan, and a tank turret.
