In A Hurry?


Cement does not dry any faster for lawyers than for the rest of us no matter where they need to be. Yes, it was a female behind the wheel, let the 'woman driver' jokes commence.

I'm afraid that whomever cracks the 1st female driver joke will cement their fate around here!

<U>Lawyer Joke</u> Any use of the female pronoun is strictly coincidental and is not meant to be taken as a slur upon any female that may, or may not, be involved, directly or indirectly, with the story or photograph rendered herein.

The fault lies with the workers' inability to do their jobs correctly in that they did not provide adequate instruction to the female driving of this car thereby allowing her to ignore every visible sign that the area she was about to drive into was under construction!

IMHO - There is a reason that there are so many woman driver jokes. They tend to do dumb things in a less fatal way than us guys do. In other words; it ain't funny when someone gets killed and that is what we guys are better at than the ladies.

I find it somewhat refreshing that the female is assumed to be the lawyer (owner of the car). How far back would you have to go before it would've been her husband's car?

They should've used asphalt. If a lawyer believes that an as might be at phalt, she might have paid a little more attention.

I call shopped. Why is the car perpendicular to the rest of the street? How did it get there without having the wheels turned (which would have left curved wheel tracks)? Why are the rear wheels completely covered in cement? As Roland asked, how did the driver get out without leaving footprints in the cement? And why are there no splashed cement marks on the paintwork?

@TheCannyScot, If you read the article, some of your questions should be answered, anyway:

>Why is the car perpendicular to the rest of the street?

"But when this woman driver attempted to do a U-turn"

>As Roland asked, how did the driver get out without leaving footprints in the cement?

"But one man who witnessed the event said the police had told her to stay in the car for her safety.
...
'They yanked her out with a flat bed, while she was still in it.'"


As to a couple of others:

>How did it get there without having the wheels turned (which would have left curved wheel tracks)?

The road looks wide enough to me that she could've straightened out in time...

>Why are the rear wheels completely covered in cement?

That could be due more to her trying to get out and spinning some.

>And why are there no splashed cement marks on the paintwork?

There is a little if you go to the source and look at an enlarged shot (http://i.imgur.com/QS4Oh.jpg), but maybe lexuses just don't get dirty ^_^

Wow, I wasn't expecting the url to import that whole image... If one of the powers that be wants to fix it, that'd be great ^^

@jswolf

Don't worry about the size of the picture. It only shows up after the jump to the comments anyway.

As to the shopped/not shopped issue. It looks to me like she could have come from the other side of the traffic barrels. That would have let her come in straight on. And the coverage of the rear wheels in cement could easily be from spinning her wheels once they got into the cement and she lost traction.

I vote real.
