You’re doing it wrong

By Holden Caulfield - 11 December 2008 24

Spotting this Toyota Echo on my morning commute made me do a quick double take. It is on (or should that be off) Canberra Avenue in Fyshwick, just after the Ipswich Street intersection. It looks pretty clear that the driver had been driving the wrong way on the dual carriageway that would normally take you to Queanbeyan. However, our intrepid motorist must have thought all roads lead to Canberra. FAIL!

There didn’t appear to be anything to indicate that this was anything more than a single vehicle accident, and, despite the apparent stupidity behind the events leading up to impact, hopefully the driver (and any passengers) are okay.

So what was it that “forced” the driver off the road? Was it mechanical failure? Was it the cheek of an oncoming motorist declaring his or her right to use the correct side of the road? Was it a legless lizard? Were the last words of the driver leading up to impact “How hard can it be”? No doubt RiotACT readers will pontificate and speculate.

Yep Leopard is German. But I was taking the piss out of myself, spelling is not my forte.

#19 the Leopard is German. I feel sorry for the tree. The embarrassment of being photographed with a toilet, sorry starlet.

…It’s always funny when you see some moit in a starlet with a wing/hamster cannon and skirts. It doesn’t matter what you do to it, it will always be a starlet…

Too true. I think some of them do it for the laugh value.
