The photo above shows a Mercedes-Benz crush by the automated bollards on Cross Street in Manchester. This stretch of road is between Manchester Arndale and the Royal Exchange. So when it comes to Mercedes-Benz verses the bollards. The Bollards wins OK?! haha... PROVEN!!!
I wonder who should bare the cost of this accident. I think this will be a though one to call. The impact of the accident is from the underneath, and there are signs before the bollards that explains its operational times. So I wonder will the insurance company cover this? Or should the city council bare it? The car looks very new, in fact I think it is one of Mercedes-Benz latest design, but its stead suggest it is ready for scraping. My guess is the owner has to bare it all. What is yours?

Thanks for the visit.
Interesting mishap. Those thingies seem to work better than I'd expect.
Alicesg: I'm not quite sure if insurance cover this. I'm not even convince that it is an accident. Anyway, it's sad isn't it. I will pop by your blog later. Cheers!
Photo Cache: It is automated, that means when it is not operational it will retract into the ground. I guess the driver was trying to fool the system by following an authorise vehicle closely behind. Silly.
chrome3d: I could not work out who was the drive around the scene. I bet it will be very disappointed with himself/herself.
syel: Haha... That's a good one. I think the driver must feel like rubbish.
Per Stromsjo: That's my guess too. Yes! Surprisingly from my second photo, the thingies looks firmly intact. That is really something solid!
shionge: Yes looking at it hurts me too.
Sorry for the long absence! But don't you think it was a great vacation; some very busy weeks and just a few days off...
Amazing! Next time the guy will tink twice... )
Meanwhile Blogtrotter is still turning around Iceland, now in Waterland... Enjoy and have a fabulous week!
SandyCarlson: I think it must quite fast, if the driver is trying to sneak behind some authorised vehicles.
vaggelis vlahos: Yes!
Mo: Haha... Looks like there are some dare devils in Manchester.
Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. Have a great weekend!
Mei Teng: But I don't think the insurance company will cover this. Anyway that's my guess. haha...
horsoon: me too. Shame isn't it?
It would suck if the owner has to bear all the costs.
BTW: Loved your comments on the President photos.
