When a parking garage collapsed in New York City, an employee of the garage told local station CBS New York it would be at least three days before engineers could make the garage safe enough for owners to check the fates of their cars. That was in February. There are reportedly more than 40 cars still inside.
Most intelligent civilized people know that there is a time and a place for certain things. Those intelligent civilized people likely aren't the ones blasting a rare and expensive Brabus Mercedes-McLaren SLR Roadster (with matching Smart) through a Paris parking garage at more than 90 mph.
A fire that started yesterday is raging in the underground garage of Paris's Ritz Hotel below the Place Vendome, allegedly caused by a Ferrari that burst into flames. The garage is typically full of exotic cars and damage could be well over $6 million once the fire is extinguished. Because, yes, the fire still isn't…

A 62-year-old man died when his Toyota Sienna smashed through a barrier and landed wheels up on the ground below a Houston, Texas parking garage this morning. No word yet on whether unintended acceleration or being old is to blame.
The three-dimensional directional system Australian designer Axel Peemoeller created inside the Eureka Tower Car Park in Melbourne may have won several design awards, but wethinks perhaps it'll freak you out if you happen to be walking by.

We just hope the dollar-bill…
