Woah. Interesting ride to work this morning at about 11am-ish on Citylink heading towards the airport. I was a few cars behind a petrol tanker. Someone two cars in front of me swerved violently. I anticipated having to do some scary shit. Sure enough there was a huge WHACK as the car in front of me hit one of those long hoses that the tankers use to fill the underground tanks at the petrol stations. The hose was snaking along, moving to the right, I swerved left, waited for it to wizz past me and in the mean time reconfirmed that there was noone to the right of me, then as everyone else was swerving left too (and braking and it was a shitfight) I then swerved across the right lane, into the emergency lane, slowed to about 90kph and left everyone to it. Behind me there were cars concertina'd along the freeway, and the petrol tanker was stopped across two lanes. (I didn't want to e-brake coz the cars behind might not have noticed in time). Yeah, I didn't bother having a coffee when I got to work this morning, after I was through that incident the ol' heart was beating nice and fast!
