Tonight's encounter was with one of those little cement curbs between lanes. I was trying to decide what to eat, and at the last moment decided to turn left into a parking lot, but when I looked back over my shoulder to check my blindspot, I wasn't looking ahead of me to see that the left turn lane wasn't supposed to be switched into at the last second, with a little cement curb-thing to enforce that.
Fortunately, my car has enough clearance to straddle a little cement curb-thing and still have all four tires on the ground, so I was able to wiggle my way off it. And nothing seems to be damaged... nothing's *leaking* anyway.
I think I prefer the cement pillars I kept scraping against with my last car, though.
