An American in China

Photo of a Car Park or Stairwell in China

China has the deadliest roads, on a per person basis , in the world so when I saw this photo I immediately thought it was just an instance of another Chinese driver doing something stupid. The funny thing is that it was not the driver who had done something stupid but the building management officials.
The driver of the car simply followed the signs to the ‘car park’ or parking lot, and this is what it got her. The building officials admitted that the sign was in the wrong place and that no these stair steps are not part of the parking structure. The management group will compensate the victim for her troubles, however.
