Over the summer I was on a trip with my dad and a friend (all in separate, lifted SUVs) traveling down I-81. I was following behind my friend and he narrowly avoided a huge (wheel-sized) flat chunk of metal. I didn't have enough time to react between him driving over it (not hitting it) and me hitting it. Since I drive a lifted Jeep, I'm not one to do dramatic swerves at highway speeds, and figured I'd be safer taking the flat tire than swerving anyway. Well, I didn't get a flat. I drove straight over it, and kicked it up. My dad, following behind me, managed to get out of the way. The next 2 vehicles weren't so lucky. The metal sliced right through a Titan's gas tank, then through an 18-wheeler's front tire. After that came an adrenaline-filled struggle to stay ahead of the maybe-about-to-explode pickup and the truck that basically can't steer or brake, while still trying to get to the shoulder and hoping my comrades can do the same. Fortunately everyone involved made it to the shoulder safely. The family in the Titan was traveling all the way from New England (we were in VA), so that must have ruined their trip. I felt like a huge jerk for being the one who kicked the debris up. It sucked. Screw road debris.
the problem is all the people who cant even legally drive in THEIR country is trying to drive in ours.
not discounting the fact that most cant even read our road signs.
op, let me know if you want to sell the e93 once it hits the 50% depreciation mark. im local
