Kicker: Compact car

A woman in China gave new meaning to the term “compact car.”

A now viral video shows the 50-year-old woman ambling down a major road while all the cars around her sped past.

She was driving a pink bumper car.

According to Chinese media, the woman owns a bumper-car business—and made the commute in her tiny pink vehicle out of convenience.

But police were not amused.

They stopped the woman and confiscated the bumper car, saying they had warned her many times in the past.

A word to the wise: The one thing you probably ought not to do is mess with the authorities in China.
