Lawyer sues toll road company over slow speeds

For all those who thought Americans were too litigious, here's a story from China about an attorney suing the Hubei Expressway Company because a traffic jam led to the speed provided not being "express". He is arguing that the lower-quality product (a slower road) should mean lower fees. Needless to say, lower fees would result in more cars on the road, leading to even slower speeds, but then, he's a lawyer and not an economist.

For more details, see the story in Chinese or English.
