A ZEBRA crossing ‘in the middle of nowhere’ has sparked outrage and confusion rural northern Spain.

A video shows the freshly-painted crossing complete with four flashing signs alerting to drivers to non-existent pedestrians.

“It’s in a mountainous area in Galicia where there’s no one around for kilometres,” wrote Robert Martinez, who posted the video online.

“It’s a zebra crossing in the middle of nowhere.”

The video sparked a raft of sarcastic comments, with one writing ‘is this their justification for taking our money?’

Another wrote it could have been for ‘pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago’, while a number assumed it was for the ‘cows and sheep’.

“This is what you call a ‘contract of brothers-in-law’. Someone’s family member made a lot of money from this,” wrote one commentator.
