A Buick grill? Let me guess...the driver was 80+ and looking for a Farmer's Market.

"The number of tops of people's heads I see as I am driving to and from work seems to be increasing," she said. "Everyone seems to be looking down and at something else."

Welcome to being part of the problem, ironic anecdote lady.

Problem: Cars keep driving into houses

Solution: Build houses half underground with a jump on the roof:

On Kaua'i this week, a 90 year old man ran his vehicle into a post office. Allegedly. Allegedly ran his vehicle into the post office. Luckily, no one was hurt.

/the people in my office thot I was cruel when I said out loud, "What, where there no farmer's markets around?"
//Must be more careful using my Fark voice!!!
///Dear coworkers: Get on Fark now!!!

A family in town kept having their house smashed into by cars. There was a tight turn in the road and if people were driving too fast, the car went airborne and landed in their living room.

Supposedly, hey were going to solve this by putting up a stone fence, but the local sheriff stopped them. Something about how people would die if they put up the fence (nobody had died smashing into the living room). They finally put a traffic light there, even though there isn't really an intersection. I think that did the trick.

Like it's plagiarism of some great work or something. Calm yourself.

I remember reading that story a couple years back. I don't believe it was their house it was their fence. Thing would get knocked down by cars flying off the road into their lawn 2-3 times a year. I am glad they finally got a good resolution.

The cops supposedly have "special training" that turns them into multi tasking ninjas so they can fiddle with their toys without crashing like us "normal" people.

Cars crashing into buildings...here in FL its mostly old people. They do 2 things...first they pput it into the wrong gear, either Drive when they ant Reverse, or vise versa. The other big oops is hitting the gas instead of the brake. Sometimes they combine the two. Then when the car starts going, they press the pedal even harder, because they are 100% sure they are on the brake.


Some of the things Ive seen old people do on the road, and do frequently, make me really think that driving, vision, and comprehension tests should be given to senior drivers.

Is it your headline or are you just assuming? Perhaps there are people, like you, who visit both sites.

I guess things are lean over at reddit as well, as I've had headlines I've submitted to Fark posted there, word for word, linking to the same article. Some of those were redlit, so it's even TFers doing it. And let's not pretend there isn't a shiat ton of content on reddit that isn't just old pics that someone writes a crappy title for to get fake points.
