Not something you see very often in Blighty. Especially in this part of Sunderland. I'm surprised it made it back safe and sound and didn't end up on a few dinner plates across the area.

cars on railroad or tram tracks are not that rare actually



or inadequate transportation of weird goods (yeahm that's gutter and it's hell raining!)



or weird way to enter the curve too fast


or weird shortcut to gas station


and this is citizens' revolt against parking payment in their street

Looks like the video by CNN of the white van crash simply landed on a large ant hill sending 2-legged ants running, wait, im being told those are people...

And the BMW on the rails, looks like the driver wanted to bypass the stopped traffic, then only got so far before the tire blew out (as one can see in the last photo)

Yeah but not usually they fall into tramway trench and block fast tramway line .



Even removing it was quite problematic.

I'd say that the driver was going "too fast for conditions" and slid off the road after hitting an icy patch and losing control.

It's probably just a small road that serves the parking lot...I've seen worse on Belgian parking lots...

I have never been there but I would like to.

But this one is probably the worst "hole" I have ever seen on our roads.
