Abandoned Cars on Coachmans Drive

The cars of those who had tried, and failed, to make it up the hill either last night or this morning.

 

Of course all it needs if for one person to get stuck and every other car also on the hill loses momentum and ends up getting stuck too. It doesn't help that this road has speed bumps and a roundabout half way up the hill.

 

The Most Ambitious Person award has to go to the HGV driver who thought that he, and his truck, could make it. Needless to say he didn't and had to let it roll back down the hill while avoiding the haphazardly parked cars on the side of the road.

 

This is one of the less severe inclines in Broadfield too, so I dread to think of what the others were like.
