Dean, these things are a very popular Christmas, Kwanza, Hanukka, birthday, brisse, barmitzvah, Halloween, MLK Day, Presidents day.........

Because of South Floridas canal systems.

That's a weekly occurrence for the over 90 crowd.

Alligators gotta eat, too.

The top is like a pin point hammer for busting glass and the bottom has a cutter blade for the seat belt.

You should be able to get out using one hand, so you can continue texting as you go down.

Re: BOCA RATON, FL Made The News Up Here This Evening Mike

I graduated from Boca in 72 and the only canals back then were salt water off the intracoastal. That area must be the newer area that has been built into the everglades loaded with some nasty things just waiting for a tasty meal. One day I looked down and saw a rattler on my foot. Damn near jumped out of my shoes. I will stay in Boston, the critters don't eat us. LOL

Re: BOCA RATON, FL Made The News Up Here This Evening Mike

Your car runs off into a canal while the windows are closed and the aircon is on. Will it sink to the bottom immediately? If it floats, what should you do immediately? It sinks to the bottom and lands right-side-up, what should you do? Assume six feet deep. Will the power window(s) work? Could you crank it down (my no-frills pickup)? how big of hole in safety glass will that gizmo make? Just curious. I wonder if the NHTSA has done experiments on this.

Side windows are tempered, one whack turns the whole window into a million tiny pieces.

Re: BOCA RATON, FL Made The News Up Here This Evening Mike

I just posted this because it was the only time I ever remember seeing Boca Raton, Fl on our local news and it reminded me of Mike <69SHEVL>.

Guess I learned something about the South Florida's canal systems.

Well, I've managed to keep out of the canals, so far.

It's those walls on the sides of the highway that's been my problem.
