A second-generation Renault Megane within the hardtop convertible physique model was filmed in Craiova, Romania – which occurs to be the place yours actually lives – carrying no fewer than 5 PVC plumbing pipes.
As if that wasn’t bizarre sufficient, it was raining that day, however that did not cease the motive force from placing the steel roof all the way down to make room for his extra-long cargo. As the video exhibits, he was principally stalked in visitors for greater than 5 minutes by the automotive behind. The onboard dashcam captured the bizarre footage depicting a convertible doing a pickup truck’s job.
To give credit score the place it is due, the pipes do look like secured firmly in position as they are not shifting in any respect whereas the motive force navigates via the town’s slightly busy streets. Nevertheless, it goes with out saying that is nonetheless a foul concept, for a number of causes. It represents an actual hazard to place pipes within the again seats as one thing might go horribly unsuitable following a sudden response from the motive force to keep away from an accident.
Those pipes can simply fall over and hit one other automotive, and even worse, injure the motive force or a close-by pedestrian. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case right here. Adding insult to harm, he barely used the flip sign to sign his subsequent maneuver, thus growing the dangers of an accident moreover.
And then there’s the rain, which though wasn’t that unhealthy, harm to the inside cabin attributable to water can actually harm one’s pockets. The Megane CC’s proprietor did have the wind deflector up for no matter cause.
Even although the motive force wasn’t pulled over by police, he nonetheless may get into hassle because the video is being aired on Romania’s greatest information channel and the automotive’s license plate is completely seen.
