Odd, I’m surprised…

Here in the UK and across Europe, trucks have side guards to prevent cars, cyclists and people going under them and have done so for over 25 years. But in the US, where they have some of the toughest safety requirements for vehicles, they don’t have them at all!! Here is a vid about it form YouTube by BBBloch

Also, and I just have to post this – so a h/t to WKD for the email she received and forwarded.

“A woman rented a Citroen C4 in Johannesburg.   She drove from JHB to Bloemfontein.  Approximately 220km from Johannesburg the car stopped ………still in 1st gear!!     SHE THOUGHT IT WAS AUTOMATIC!     Attached the insurance photos of the engine and the bonnet”
