i don’t even know what to say about this genius:
Wednesday evening in Roseville, Mich., a 24-year-old man who apparently knew his pickup truck’s brakes weren’t working got behind the wheel anyway and tried to drive home.
He attempted, Fred Flintstone-style, to use his feet as brakes.
Unbelievable. The headline is brilliant, though.
Wow, did you watch the video? Darwin award candidate waiting to happen.
Bumper sticker, “My other car is brakeless fixie”.
I wonder if they would have used the same tone in the article had he killed or seriously injured someone.
c’mon, rsprake, people don’t kill people, cars kill peop… wait… cars don’t kill people, peopl… ok, I know somehow he wouldn’t be at fault, I just can’t put my finger on it.
Depends on the someone he killed or injured. If it was a cyclist, the tone would be something along the lines of “Scofflaw cyclist killed despite driver’s heroic effort to stop his car with his feet.”
