Guy paints his own arrows on the road, in hopes of speeding up his commute

Guy paints his own arrows on the road, in hopes of speeding up his commuteA Chinese commuter, fed up with a typically congested intersection on his way home, decided to hit on the brilliant idea of changing the arrow markings on the road himself. Police released surveillance footage of the 28-year-old man, named Cai, painting over a left-turning arrow with a can of white spray paint.

Local papers [PDF in Chinese] reported that the man from Jiangsu, China, told the police that he was irritated that his daily bus ride was always stuck going straight at that intersection, while he noticed the left-turning lane was typically empty. "What a brave, dumb guy," said one commenter on Weibo. Maybe he should've done this at night, suggested another. Authorities returned the road to its original state within the day, and fined Cai 1,000 yuan ($ 151) for his inconsiderate act that could have resulted in an accident at the junction.

Trump Voter Fraud Panel Agenda Paints Picture Of Election System Rife With Fraud

Trump Voter Fraud Panel Agenda Paints Picture Of Election System Rife With FraudPresident Donald Trump’s commission to investigate voter fraud is set to meet publicly for the second time on Tuesday amid continued controversy and lingering questions about its goals and objectives. Since its creation in May, critics have argued the panel is a way for Trump to justify his unsubstantiated claim that he would have won the popular vote in the presidential election last year had it not been for millions of illegal votes. Critics have expressed considerable alarm at the presence of certain panelists, particularly Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R), former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R), as well as former Justice Department officials Hans von Spakovsky and J. Christian Adams, because all four have a history of pushing more restrictive voting measures.
