What Happens When You Don't Use A Parking Brake

If you're rich enough, you don't have to worry about anything. You can buy an expensive car and little winged fairies will hold it upon hillsides for you with a golden net while you're at the club.

Well, ok, in reality, even the very wealthy have to observe the laws of physics, like this BMW M6 driver who forgot to apply the parking brake.

A motorist cruising through an affluent neighborhood in Bath, Ohio spotted this M6 — whose hapless owner (or valet) appears to have left it in neutral next to some hilltop mansion — took a picture, and sent it to us. Even though the car is at least a couple years old, it's still worth about $60,000.

Oh well, chances are good that the repairs won't cost quite that much. Maybe next time he should try a bag.
