A Poorly-Placed Rock in Illinois Has the Internet Buzzing and Drivers Cringing
We've all witnessed a bad parking job. We've all witnessed a vehicle parked in a fire lane or handicap spot while someone else inside the store in one of those "in and out" situations. This, though, I've never seen something like this until now.
Redditor u/pete-petey-pete shared a photo of a rock that has been known to put a damper on a driver's day. Actually, according to Pete Petey Pete (I wish that was his real name.), it's not just a few cars that have been burdened by this rock in Roselle, Illinois, it's closer to 100. Also, it's not only cars feeling the wrath of the rock...
No, this rock.
You might be thinking it doesn't look like that rock should be too much of a problem and you're right. But, apparently, it has been problematic for drivers in Roselle because hundreds of drivers have gotten their vehicles stuck on this rock.
Not only were cars getting stuck, so were vans and even police vehicles.
Notice the tow-zone warning sign? Not even that could detour people from the rock.
Everybody wants a piece of this rock.
In fact, there was even a yellow pole installed near it to prevent this from happening.
At one point in time they tried to put a bright yellow post at the end of the curbed peninsula so people would avoid it
Did it work? Nope.
What is the lesson here?
That stretch of grass is called a peninsula (which I never knew) and Roselle has a lot of not-so-attentive drivers.
