Question Pot hole & man hole watch (pic inside)



ALERT!!!

Got this in a forward email... I have seen some weird stuff but never seen anything like this!

As per the email all survived the plunge... and this was somewhere in Andheri close to shoppers stop (dont quote me on this)!

Has anyone seen anything worse then this? It wont be a bad idea to share the location of the pot/man hole (bigger badded ones) that could potentially damage the car and more!

Sure it's the manhole cover. You can see a metal projection next to the front bumper

but in such a case can criminal proceedings b started against the municipal corporation for all the damages.

pls give ur opinion cause i m sure if this was in US the merc guy cud have walked away with all the damage costs + good money for mental harrasment, trauma, loss of time etc.
