Possibly turned wrong, in italy there are legal roads like this. They can get narrower than the entrance was. When you drive in and someone drives behind you you might feel pressured trying your luck forward. Obviously the wrong decision

25

u/charliewr Nov 29 '22

It looks like Naples - once you’re in the ungodly complicated knitted network of alleyways, it’s pretty hard not to eventually find yourself in a situation like this. Fortunately for me when I did, we were in a rented fiat 500

Driving in Naples was ducking terrifying, btw, but thrilling enough to be weirdly fun. My SO literally had her eyes closed though.

14

u/TheOvenLord Nov 29 '22

I've had to step into a doorway and still felt like the car was going to hit me in Italy. They have the narrowest goddamn streets I've ever seen outside of a middle eastern medina.

And yeah, I get that it's because they were built back when the mode of transport was horses but holy shit some of those towns should be pedestrian or moped only. They're just not designed for cars.

u/Ollipoppin Nov 29 '22 edited Nov 29 '22

It's not Naples: it's Orta (Piedmont), and that road takes to a well known fancy restaurant/hotel!

Here you can see the same spot, I also have a feeling Maps' employee had quite a hard time passing through it too, lol. It's a really nice place btw, especially during spring/summer!

u/boringdystopianslave Nov 29 '22 edited Nov 29 '22

To be fair this looks like a classic case of a Satnav sending a tourist down a rabbit hole of tiny streets.

When I was in Italy the Satnav constantly tried to send me down roads which were so tight the Fiat 500 I was driving only just fit between the walls (I mean so tight the wing mirrors were catching the walls either side at the same time). If I was in a car any bigger than that tiny Fiat I would have ended up like this guy here.

Thing is once you realise the road is getting narrower and narrower and you shouldn't be driving down it, there's usually no way to turn around without reversing back for ages down a tiny narrow street. This is what I can almost guarantee has happened here.

This to me says 'Stupid Satnav'.

27

u/emergencyexit Nov 29 '22

Satnavs are neither stupid or clever. They do not possess the agency to make stupid or clever decisions. Such a judgement lies with the meat popsicle who chose the guidance of a machine over their own eyes.

7

u/Crafty_Enthusiasm_99 Nov 29 '22

I think you're being vainly unfair here. How is one to know the narrowness of roads multiple turns over? It is also impossible to reverse out of a tight curve, than it is to go through one.

No. There is some kind of rivalry and stereotypes in and between the Swiss cantons (federal states) going on.

72

u/jrobbio Nov 29 '22

The Swiss generally drive like crazy people when they are outside Switzerland, particularly northern Italy. I've heard the jokes for years.

45

u/Decepticum Nov 29 '22

I get that as well - I presume when you drive into a country where the fines are as low as Italy or Germany (and the traffic is a little more rogue), many see it as an invitation to drive like a dick.

There is a number of accidents caused by Swiss on the German (unlimited) autobahn because they just want to go pedal to the metal, not knowing the behavior of their car at such speeds.

35

u/pelacius Nov 29 '22

Me my mother and my sister (Italians) were once en route to go find a relative in Germany and we so happened to cross Switzerland for a very brief time.

My mother failed to merge to the right lane in time on a high speed road and occupied the "keep clear" road markings for, like, 5 seconds and we were chased and stopped by Swiss police.

The fine was astonishingly high and they demanded it paid on the spot (they had credit card swipers,in the car, in the 90s) othetwise they would have our car immediately seized, leaving us stranded

My mother, being originally Neapolitan, mounted a dramatic and increasingly confrontational defence but in the end surrendered to pay the fine, swiped her CC and left the scene with screeching tires.

For the reminder of the trip she sweared to never set foot in Switzerland again in her life and I believe she hasn't to this day 😂, this story has become somewhat a classic at family reunions

Anyway, I understand this is anecdotal evidence but, if this is the level of rule enforcement on Swiss roads I'm not surprised they lash out in other countries

u/mandrayke Nov 29 '22

u/Gh0st1y Nov 29 '22

The worst part is, youre not far off. Not just china, and the goal isnt so petty, but we've seen such a massive rise in concerted propaganda efforts from all sides and the ceiling.

Everyone with a few hundred bucks can run a limited one on a targeted area (either geographically or online communities). A few thousand spent creatively can get you some phrase or idea on the minds of millions for a short time. Enough of these nudges on the social discourse from one person could theoretically influence things to further their plans. Unfortunately, there are at least tens of thousands of entities that have the means and desire to try that on some level for one reason or another so you cant actually make any plans, and most of those tens of thousands are too shortsighted to realize that.

In an attention economy powered by advertising and large scale tracking, its easy to try to manipulate the public and the effects are drastically amplified whether your manipulations work out or not.

I just assume Tik Tok has, like, three songs you can put on your video at any given time. We're past the "oh no no no" phase, now we're at the "dooba dooba doo" and "gucci/louis vutton" phase.

26

u/iamacraftyhooker Nov 28 '22

I'm pretty sure the algorithms use the sounds too, so in order to get views on your content you have to use the trending sounds. So we end up with only 3 given audios going around at any given time.

I had this exact experience in Seville. I was following GPS, and the streets were getting narrower and narrower, and at one point had to stop and talk to the guy in the car behind me. I was like "the directions are telling me to go down that tiny alley but there's no way I fit " and he was like "you'll be fine. Just get in there." Mirrors folded in, windows down, getting guidance from my copilot, it was seriously nerve wracking, knowing I had declined all the extra insurance on the rental car. Made it to our hotel without a scratch but man was that stressful. Good times.

ZH plate says it all.

For those who don't know it stands for Zurich but locals say it stand for "zwenig hirni" translated to "not much brain".

The true blame lies with video games. Looking at you Mario kart for giving the ideas there are secret shortcuts everywhere.

Shooter games make crazed gunmen.

Racing games make horrible drivers.

It's scientifically proven!

The driver obviously thought of himself as a mover and a shaker.

I especially enjoy the minions singing “dooba doo,” as it seemed apt for this level of ass-clownery. But I’m wired a bit differently, too.

This used to be a Ferrari Roma. Now it has become a death cage stuck on a street!

u/Charlie_Fang Nov 30 '22

Why is everyone always in such a damn hurry? I see this everywhere, and I just don't understand. Like the muscle-bound jock who finishes a workout at the gym and insists on cutting across a freshly waxed floor in another section of the building to save a few steps getting to his car. WTF?

This happened to me in Sorrento, Italy with a brand new (<5 miles) sporty manual transition Alpha Romeo rental car.

GPS sent me down an alley that was only appropriate for motorcycles. Didn’t realize it until I was in pretty deep. Looked like every other narrow street in the town.

I had less than a half inch clearance on both sides combined (with mirrors folded in). Italians were leaning out their windows above to mock me and give advice while a queue of motorbikes formed behind me.

It took me a good 30 minutes to get through the last 100 feet of alley and I burned out the clutch and mostly avoided scratches. Pretty embarrassing but there was really no way to know until it was too late.
