It’s bad enough on the roads as it is.

Now picture these cheery scenarios:

  1. You’re pootling along on a nice sunny day (on holiday/out for a Sunday drive/whatever), when the kid upstairs is sick over the side of the car … or drops an empty can of coke out of the window, straight into your intake. WHAM!
  2. You’re driving along, when some idiot who isn’t looking where he’s going decides to change altitude … right underneath you. WHAM!
  3. You’re driving along, when some idiot above you, with a clapped out heap he hasn’t maintained for years, suddenly breaks down and loses altitude. WHAM!
  4. You’re in your garden/on your penthouse roof/balcony, sunning yourself/having a barbecue with friends/family/the boss, when scenario 1 or 3 happens to you. WHAM!
  5. You are the culprit. WHAM!
  6. Joyriders! (C.f. scenarios 1, 2 ,3 ,4) WHAM!
  7. Birds! WHAM!
  8. You break down … quite literally. WHAM!
  9. High-speed police-chase goes awry. WHAM!
  10. Hijackings … HOW far is it to Uzbeckistan!?!

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live and too rare to die.
