Asleep at the wheel

Rita appeared on Triple RRR this morning to talk about the Punt Road Project. The wonderful Breakfasters asked listeners to call in with their Punt Road stories and, boy, were there some doozies! 

One lovely lady called in to say that, once, on an early morning (and slightly jet-lagged) drive down Punt Road, she started to feel all warm and sleepy with the sun shining on her face. It was peak hour gridlock so she slipped the car into neutral and let herself drift off for a moment...

HALF AN HOUR LATER she woke up. The gridlock was so bad that no one had even noticed! Her fellow road companions just kept driving around her. Hilarious! But not recommended.
