Rage Against the Machine

Welcome to Iran – where road rage means damaging your own car

An incensed Iranian motorist doused his car in petrol and set it ablaze with a match after picking up a parking ticket, media reported Wednesday.

 

The ISNA student news agency posted photographs of the charred shell of the car on its Web site and quoted witnesses describing the driver’s frantic but fruitless pleas to the parking attendant not to issue a ticket.

 

“Extremely angry, he took a jerrycan of petrol out of the boot and set fire to his car,” ISNA quoted a witness in poor south Tehran as saying.

Now if only someone would set fire to their nuclear reactor.
