This is the bizarre moment a pair of women in China tried to reserve a parking spot by standing on it.
The two ladies were reportedly saving the space for their friend when a black SUV came and tried to park in it in a mall in Nanjing City, Jiangsu province on January 16.
Footage shows the women pushing against the unrelenting vehicle, which did not stop backing up until it was occupying the parking spot. The driver and his passenger were filmed getting into a heated argument with the women after the incident.
Wang Wen, a lawyer familiar with the matter, said: ‘Public places such as underground parking in shopping malls and public parking spaces should follow the principle of first-come, first-served. No parking spaces may be occupied without permission.’
Provisions in Article 23, Paragraph 2 of China’s Public Security Administration Punishment Law said citizens who disrupt public order can be fined between 200 to 500 yuan, and may face detention of at least five days.
Police later arrived and reportedly took both parties to the station for mediation.
