True story: I once burst a tyre and didn't realise why my car had started making a loud noise. For some reason it didn't occur to me to pull over and have a look... I drove 17 miles on the rim. Felt a right idiot, particularly when I had to pay for a new wheel.

Helpful picture of what "drink driving" may look like:

Without the tyre hell, that's without the rim on the wheel.

Threesomes are a lot more common than you'd think, and not just in Russia.

October, yesterday, September, another in October, Nova Scotia in July, Australia in July...

Hah. Thought the same. Car without a "tyre" is shocking. Police see a lot of shiat. What happens when they observe something that is truly shocking? Is that when they get to be gobsmacked?

That is a helluva lot of "shock" in one article.

1. Norfolk police 'shocked' at car driven without front tyre
2. Police said they were "shocked" to find
3. They were shocked to find a car being driven with no front tyre
4. Social media users have expressed their shock at the state of the car.
5. Sgt Chris Harris responded: "Yes, it is the shocking reality of what we have to deal with.

It is not a long article.  Hell, I wouldn't be shocked if I missed an instance or two.

Such shock.

There was much WTFing, LOLing and OMGing.

The last time they were this shocked was when HeadOn was revealed to be a scam.

My ex-wife wanted to drive somewhere after a rare snow storm. I had tire chains so I put them on.  She took off and apparently the secured end of the chain got loose and started to bang around like crazy. She got home a few hours later and there was a hole thru the fender. The tire chain beat a hole in the metal body part. I couldn't understand how she didn't hear that or that the amount of noise didn't concern her much less how fast she must have been driving to do that.

Don't feel too bad. James Brown did that through two states, police in tow. All on rims and a head full of cocaine.

He couldn't hear, because his wife was in the passengers seat.

Thank you for filling in what Babble left out

My mom has done this. To my car. And ran over what i guess were mailboxes from the dents and the busted windshield. If she hadnt parked it sideways off the culvert and passed out id never had been able to convince her she did it. ( mid 90s )

She got her dui(s) later.

Dont drink yourself under the table and sorta try to drive...

Snow chains aren't supposed to be driven faster than 30 MPH are they?

Reminds me of a certain scene from The Wolf Of Wall Street.
 
2019-01-29 01:41:24 AM  
I drove half a mile home on a flat just last summer, after giving up on changing the tire because:

A) the jack and tire iron supplied with the car were pitiful excuses for roadside tools, and

2) I suddenly realized that if I exerted myself trying to loosen the lugs with that iron, I'd shiat myself right there.

/almost didn't make it

Pfft. The Citroen DS could be driven on three wheels.
 
2019-01-29 06:02:57 AM  
Technically, the wheel wasn't making any noise at all.
