I may get some abuse for this (so what's new) but, is that the driver checking out the front tyre?

Maybe it's the driver, petting the car... "Don't worry, it'll all be over soon!"

"How do I remove this concrete car jack, now that I've changed the tire?"

"Frauenparkplätze"

This reminds me of something I saw while in traffic once.

I was behind a guy in a car (I forget the make/model), waiting to make a left-hand turn on a 8-12in median'ed road that allowed practically one car every 5 minutes to turn left (yeah, it was horrible). We were near the back of a 10-or-so car line, when the driver starts cursing and yelling up a storm. The then throws the car in reverse, backs up as much as he can, puts it in drive and tries to "hop the median" with his car to make the left (a u-turn move I suppose). He instantly see-sawed the car on the median, as the center mass of the car hit the median and neither set of tires could touch the ground.

One of the funnier things that I've seen on the road... especially when he got out and (after cursing up yet another storm) looks to me as if to say "what do I do now?!".

That new RX-8 packs quite a punch ;-)

In my part of the world, if you see somebody doddering along in the far left lane but not overtaking anyone, their vehilcle is usually sporting Maryland number plates like the unfortunate damsel's Mazda in the photo.

Hmm Bill, where I come from, if there's some a**hole racing up behind you and weaving in and out of traffic to get two car lengths ahead, he's probably got VA plates.

Thanks for proving my point!
