This Beijing policeman has a hard look at this BMW X1. Not because it’s extremely dusty. A few days parked outside in Beijing, and any car looks like that. No, this car has no license plates. The plateless car has been gathering dust for a while on Beijing’s streets.

So the policeman has the X1 towed. In America, that would be that. But this is China. To maintain a harmonious society, the owner needs to be notified of the towing. Now, the policeman has a problem: There is no license plate on the car, so how should he know the owner?

A fast thinking member of Beijing’s Finest whips out a piece of chalk, kneels and writes (translation courtesy Carnewschina: )

“To the owner of the BMW X1 car. Please contact the local police station for information concerning your property.”

It looks like it hasn’t been raining for a while. The chalk may still be there when the owner comes back.
