i have had to dodge a carpet that fell off a truck 2 cars infront and blocked the fast lane! It was raining and it was the height of my bonnet and sods law it fell accross the lane! Other people were not so lucky.
I was on the motorway a while ago and the car i was overtaking hit a pothole (british roads eh), now this car had a spare wheel up under the back of the car, the frame carrying the wheel gave way, the next thing i see is sparks coming from this frame and i pass a spare wheel thats sliding at quite a pace complete with jack and tools in the centre.
I have no idea of the damage this probably caused to cars behind but the silly cow kept on going so i reported her to the police, i hope she got a bollocking.
Those of you who drive I-95 in florida know what I mean, and those on the east coast who have driven 95 ever, know what I mean...
I95 has lots trash on it, and its boxed in (in south florida) on both sides by concrete guards, so trash just piles up on the sides of the road. ANd when I say trash I dont be home refuse, I mean **** that falls off of cars, trucks etc.
Anyway few years back, a guy was driving in the HOV lane and heard a metal clank sound and felt something hot on his leg. He looked down and in horror he saw a rebar sticking into his leg thru the floor boards.
I dont remember anymore details but this was just a footnote in the papers because no one ever cleans up 95 and even after this story, no one cared.
