Accident on Wakefield Ave

By Kerces - 27 November 2006 26

This morning a car ran into a lightpost just near the ABC building on Wakefield Avenue. The lightpole was rather bent and in a display of speedy work, it had been removed and a new one waiting to go in within an hour of this photo being taken.

Actually B_K, I’m on vic’s side on this one.

That’s not to say either that males aren’t dickheads from the ages of 16-25, but significant personal experience has shown that I shouldn’t drive anywhere near a hyundai with pink seat covers on the road at risk of imminent death.

well I have heard of the technique of you are heading towards an obsticle actually looking at where you would rather be… apparently you will naturally adjust.

In a moment of panic it is human nature to fix on an object and head for it. This is why so many people hit the only tree in sight. Science has proved this. Unfortunatley they haven’t found a technique to avoid it.

ahhh vic… you and your small mind, believing nasty stereotypes like that… don’t worry, you’ll catch up with the rest of us soon enough.

i happen to know a lot of very good women drivers. maybe you’re just in the habit of hanging out with stupid people?

Come on Bonfire, everyone knows that lamp posts are marginally less dangerous than kangaroos in that they leap out at you at the most inopportune times.

Such as when you misjudge a corner and end up on a nature strip at 60 clicks.

Thankfully I’ve never had the pleasure of crashing into one….

Not confused at all B_K.

All women are bad drivers. It’s an interesting demographic.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery JB. Nev would have looked good as a SAAB i reckon.

Lamposts have a natural attraction for cars: just another of life’s enduring relationship mysteries.
-Truth is, though, some ABC employees will do anything to skive off work…

Battle_Kath 10:11 am 28 Nov 06

you seem to have confused bad drivers with all women… just like an idiot would… how weird?

Vic Bitterman 10:05 am 28 Nov 06

Eat me, B_K.

Was it you?

Battle_Kath 9:57 am 28 Nov 06

f*ck off vic.

It’s obviously a very unsafe place to put a lamp post.

I blame the government.

Oh, and George Gregan…

I really wonder how it’s possible to do this without a keg of beer and a rugby international.

Bloody women drivers and their Saabs…..
