China: Man tries to manipulate road signs to draw more customers to his eatery; fined

According to Shanghaiist, a restaurant owner in the city of Suzhou, located west of Shanghai, was seen making alterations to the road markings outside his eatery to attract more footfalls.

The man was consequently fined 2,000 yuan (Rs 20,492) by the law-keepers.
