Chalk it up to the ingenuity of the American worker.
Road crews in St. Louis were on a tight deadline to finish paving work on a major project. That's when they hit a bump in the road--or a parked car in the road, to be precise.
As reported by the city's Riverfront Times, it was a blue Kia hatchback, parked in front of Gaslight STL, a bar and recording studio:
"But the car was in fact parked legally — somehow, not a single person had thought to put up 'no parking' signs before the final push of the massive construction effort. And that, apparently, ruled out calling a tow truck."
A tweet from a St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographer went viral around the city, of course.

The photographer, Robert Cohen, followed up on the story two days later: No more blue Kia.
'No parking' sign is up. Looks like paving is imminent on The Hill. pic.twitter.com/IF56dYAEPA
