This is why trolls like this do it, to get a reaction, makes them feel important they’ve annoyed someone. If everyone stopped the thumbs down and stuff he probably would.

100% correct – also Brexit and Beryl scooters were in the mix as well, according to my “sources”.

It’s actually very easy to roll a car can even be done at rolling speed, one little clip of a curb or if a parked car has left their wheels poking out. Either way there’s thousands of cars on the road down here so even if there was an accident every day that’s still a small percentage. People need to get off their high horses and stop judging just because it’s never happened to them.

The car wasn’t on the roof, it was on the side. I walked past and the 2 people in the car escaped. It was not blocking the entire road. Such drama
