This footage shows a vehicle parked by a driver described as incredibly skilled who has apparently managed to leave the car right up against a utility pole with only a paper-thin gap remaining.
Footage supplied by Zhao Minqiang, resident of Yinchuan County in Central China’s Henan Province, shows the silver saloon car left in an alley on the evening of 2nd March.
Mr Zhao told Asia Wire that a friend had noticed the unoccupied car in the side street off Lianmeng Road.
Images of the parked car appear to show its front bumper and number plate pressed up against the concrete post, but Mr Zhao and his friend manage to slip a piece of paper through the gap.
Footage proving that the skilled motorist has indeed managed to avoid crashing into the column shows the paper moving freely between the utility pole and the car.
Mr Zhao said the owner of the vehicle, who has been dubbed ‘Paper-thin Bro’ online – was not present at the time.
Mr Zhao said: “I went to do an experiment with a piece of paper and discovered there really was a paper-thin gap between the number plate and power pole!
“It’s hard not to be surprised by this driver’s parking skills.
“I have no idea how he managed it.”
It was not clear how the driver was planning to get should another car have been parked behind it.
