Vehicle owners hoping to spare their automobiles from rising flood waters in Bangkok have taken to parking on elevated highways. According to The Bangkok Post, around 500 vehicles were illegally parked between Ngam Wong Wan and Pracha Chuen while thousands more were left spread across other highways in the province of Nonthaburi. The vehicles made for difficult commuting for drivers already inconvenienced by the flood. Authorities have asked owners to move their property, saying that the congestion is making a difficult job worse for emergency response personnel. Those who fail to do so will endure a healthy towing bill.

In the meantime, Bangkok's highways have taken on a certain post-apocalyptic air. With abandoned vehicles lining the roadway and the threat of catastrophic flooding, the city is a band of roaming cannibal raiders away from a Cormac McCarthy horror show. Hit the jump to check out a video of the situation for yourself.
