Well let me introduce this thread. Every hour there are so many accidents all over the world. It is many times sad but there are also really funny ones which happenes and not so serieus. So let's start to share pictures of these accidents and other funny situations from roads of our countries!

What about some pics from Slovakia?


Oh man, this was a real adventure, cow in Branisko tunnel!

^^ Why they didn't close the lane? :eek:
It wasn't practical to close both lanes. What SHOULD have been done, was to have manual traffic control for the open lane. That way, the person controlling traffic could have stopped the truck, in addition to reducing the speed of traffic passing the work area.

And this is why you never overload your vehicle.

manual control is not acceptable at motorways. the most proper thing would be to have the whole half of motorway closed and to organize traffic at the other half. why they didn't do it? probably because of the fact that works on changing regulation of traffic would take them at least 3 hours, and finnising probably the small repair (i think they've been changing burnt bulb) takes 10 minutes.
on the other hand - there is also enough space at emergency lane to bypass working zone. maybe that would be the best solution.

Funny situations you say? How about llamas on the loose on Ireland's busiest motorway interchange?!





Fortunately there was no accident.

Unfortunately the Youtube footage is gone. :)

Escaped llamas cause Red Cow chaos


A herd of llamas and two goats caused chaos on the M50 this afternoon at the Red Cow roundabout [sic].

The animals escaped from a circus and mader [sic] their way onto the motorway where they caused major traffic disruption, with up to 5km tailbacks reported.

They have since been rounded up and loaded into trucks and traffic in the area has returned to normal.
