Rac


Saw this upturned car (Rac if you read it backwords... my own silly P.J. Ha! Ha!!) on my way home from work. Scenes like this are a plenty in Kuwait. Wondering how they managed to get the driver out of this one.

ouch! So it seems you are also a nation of crazy drivers! South African drivers are mostly real cowboys!

Goodness, that's pretty spectacular. Welcome to the DP family.

That's really spectacular. Can't believe that the police just left the car lying there in that state. Surely...it would be removed pretty quickly after the accident?!! Greetings from TORUĊƒ DAILY PHOTO here in Poland!

How long do the cars remain on the road, or off the road in this case?

Kate said...

Oh, my! Anybody hurt? Doesn't look like passengers could get out unscathed.

Ive seen worse here in Portugal.It seems that iresponsible reckless drivers are everywhere.

The wrecked cars are the responsiblity of the owner. If it's not moved off in a month, the police place a `X' marked sticker. If it's still not moved off by the owner for another 30 days, then the police tow it off to the scrap yard. This is what I've been told.

oh my, that looks alarming...I hope they got out fine!

Aura said...

I meant about the Racs photo,it seem to have disappeared.I can only see now a blank box with red x in the corner.

Interesting! I wonder if they charge the person for towing the car after the 30 days (after placing the X).

Regarding how they get people out of car wrecks, they most likely have something like "Jaws of Life" in Kuwait. You can read more about Jaws of Life here: http://news.carjunky.com/how_stuff_works/how_the_jaws_of_life_work_140.shtml
