Flip Flops


Here's one good way to ruin your Friday. Take your car, drive it up an uphill and really busy stretch and then see if you can flip it! LOL! Ok, ok, I shouldn't be laughing at other people's misfortunes but hey, I can't help it. No one was seriously injured though the driver did have some cuts and bruises on her. Maybe I should have loaned her my electric blanket.

But it did succeed in making me get stuck in a nice long traffic snarl, not something I was looking forward to on a Friday. This accident was less than a kilometre away from where I live and it took me quite a while to travel that short distance.

But what I cannot fathom is how this lady managed to flip her car on a stretch of road which is perpetually busy during peak hours so much so that you cannot exceed speeds of 50km/h even and on an uphill stretch at that! But she amazingly succeeded in doing it. Women drivers ... LOL!

Sorry for the fuzzy image, after all I was using my cheapo cell phone camera and was already flaunting the law by taking a pix while driving with the traffic cop giving me the eye as I passed by ... LOL! Hope I don't receive a summons in the mail one fine day.

Happy weekend people :D

  3. OMG!! Luckily she didn't involve other cars with her stunt. Could she have been from the opposite side of the road? Evil Knievel would be so proud of her.

  4. That's one seriously expensive flip flop and a reminder to the rest of us to drive safe.

    I wondered how it happened?? Like an action movie scene.

    Not all women drivers are bad. Although men may be better drivers I suppose.

  5. That looks like an SUV which has a higher centre of gravity. Maybe she brushed against the kerb at quite high speed?

  7. Syura - Hey, it's been a while since I've seen you around these parts :D

  8. Mei Teng - Was just kidding about the woman drivers part. Some men are really horrible drivers too. I'm glad she was okay.

  9. BT - Actually it was a Perodua Kelisa la, one of our national cars. Yeah it's possible but that's an uphill stretch and the trafffic at that time is normally slow moving, so I'm still amazed by the accident.
