Officials in Heilongjiang Province got the bright idea to take out the bends at this racing track in an old stadium in Tonghe County near Harbin.

The local cadres in charge of cultural activities were only given a short amount of time to do up the track before an inspection, according to Sina News.

Readers joked about the news, with one saying it’ll help train runners to stop really fast, and another saying they should put in a speed limit sign to make sure people don’t fall over.
