Men and Traffic do MIX!

Reuters today reported an odd story, indirectly related to transportation planning.

A group of 10 bodybuilders in Berlin helped lift a car out of a six foot ditch. The driver, a 38 year old man, lost control and flew into a meadow near the men's gym. It only took the men a couple of minutes to pull the car out of the ditch.

What can we learn from this? In the future when planning highways, we should always put gyms near curvy high speed paths.

Nice...It brings to mind that old Mentos commercial where the righteously compact car is pinned in by evil SUV's and the kindly itinerant bodybuilders come by and carry it out of its parking space.
