'Pavement Lunged And Hit Me', Driver Tells Sharjah Police
Emirates 24/7 ^ | Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Posted on 03/12/2014 5:53:00 PM PDT by nickcarraway

An Emirati driver who damaged his car by hitting a pavement in Sharjah told police it was not his fault and that the pavement lunged and hit his car.

Astonished police men rushed to the accident site on Mlaiha road in the emirate after receiving a phone call from the 22-year-old driver claiming he was a victim of a pavement attack.

“When the police men arrived, he told them that he was driving normally when the pavement changed direction, lunged at his car and hit it,” Banat Zayed website said.

“Police recorded the accident and decided to send the man to hospital to check whether he had taken drugs or he is mentally normal.”

Few too many what? In that country, he’ll be in really hot water for consuming alcohol, if he’s Muslim.

I really miss her, but with practice at the range my aim is steadily improving.

Wow, they had a reunion?

The Moving Sidewalks was founded by Billy Gibbons back in 1966.

You might not have heard of them, but you may have heard about the other band that Gibbons founded 4 years later:

ZZ Top.

It was a reunion. The band originally founded back in 1966.

Without reading my previous posting, do you know the band founded 4 years later by the same guy?

No. I was never a fan of psychedelic music.

I saw something like this happen on the Eisenhower in Chicago. The heat buckled the pavement on a 100+ day, it heaved up pretty quickly and 2 or 3 cars lost tires and rims.
