Steering into the gutter - Glenn's Story

Back in the 70s my father was driving down Punt Rd Hill in his old Holden ute when the brakes failed. To try to stop the ute, he kept ramming the wheels against the gutter and ended up doing it well enough to slow it down, miraculously not colliding with anybody. Eventually he was able to steer it into one of the streets close to the Yarra.
