In loving, living memory, John Melançon 1928 – 2007
At no point did the brakes start smoking again. Of course it was raining, but i think they've worn a groove.
Avoided a truck that decided
Driving much too fast on the exit ramp, a very long sharp turn, i made the mistake of braking just slightly while in the turn, and lost control of the van- countersteered, countersteered, countersteered, countersteered and the wheels gained contact with the wet road again. Veering from one side of the offramp to the other while also tracking its curve enough to not go off the pavement entirely was interesting, to say the least.
Fairly certain i let go of the brake immediately, or it would have remained with no control at all, and we probably would have hit or even flipped over the guardrail.
CS, in the driver's seat: "Oh my god!"
The two-level short-and-tall shopping cart feebly wheeling back from where attacking the van.
