A bridge too far – and a bill so huge!

An encounter for a speed camera on UK roads could cost someone £60. More serious offences result in bigger fines. But, just recently, a Chinese driver broke the world record for the most expensive traffic infringement. He received a bill for nearly £16m!

The driver, quoted in media reports only as “Mr Zhang”, was driving a truck filled with sand near Beijing. But it was so overloaded, so it’s claimed, that a giant concrete bridge collapsed under its weight! You can watch the video here.

The event happened last year. But now court officials ruled against the driver.
Local government have blamed him completely for the disaster and sent him the repair bill! A court has backed up the decision – although the driver is claimed he was just following orders, it’s reported.

How he plans to pay off the bill remains to be seen.
