Why You Need An SUV in Spitland City Streets

We have had only about 6 days of dry weather in the last month as summer hits us as angrily as Cakie smiles for the camera and/or eating. :P

Rain, storms (Alerts Yellow, Orange & Red) and typhoon one after another, bodies of water started to appear everywhere. It could be due to poor drainage or potholes or just the natural terrain that turn the slightly depression in the ground into an oasis.

My area is on a furious pace of development which translates into lots and lots of constructions here there and everywhere. Problem is that when this is work being done, there is no warning signs to tell you so. There isn't even the one guy in luminous orange vest waving his little flag. Nothing. Nada.

So here I was, at one end of an uncompleted route where we had to bash through coz the original road that we used to take to go home is gridlocked as a result of...? ... you guessed it. Road works.

This new road is currently completed and fully tarmac-ed in the middle leaving both ends incomplete. We were reaching the other end of this road when we saw this car with its head smacked stuck into a rather deep watery pit.

If you look at the picture closely, the concrete path just behind the sunken car was a main road. Who in the world would have expected a big pit, made invisible by muddy water filling it up to the brim, be right next to the main road?

Well, I am most glad I wasn't the one to have to find out head first (no pun intended).

r3gular: I will have more of that for you when you get your ass up here.

Starmist: Originally, I wanted to tag the FAIL on that car but I realised that it could have happened to anyone coz there is no way anyone could tell there was a deep ditch underneath the calm surface of murky water.

starmist: I think due to the fact that the driver was driving a SUV, he probably would have thought nothing about a little puddle of water that lay ahead. Poor guy. He must have gone in fast and hard that the car was not able to get out thereafter.
