You've Got Rat Problems? The Chinese's Got A solution

Locals in Nanning, in the Guangxi autonomous region, came up with the unusual solution after rodents were found to be clambering inside the vehicles and gnawing through the wiring. They wore their cars skirts dubbed "car maxi skirts" in the Chinese media which was fashioned from fabric and chicken wire, while some used bamboo.

"There are many rats in this area," local man Mr Zhao told Nanning TV, adding that it's a particular problem during cold spells when rats like to snuggle down in warm places, like car bonnets. "Putting these around the cars is a good thing, and it can also prevent small children from scratching them," he said.
