Earlier this year, federal safety regulators at NHTSA released a report saying that women drivers involved in pedal misapplication crashes outnumber men by a margin of roughly 2 to 1 – and before you make a snarky remark, learn that the same study found that male drivers account for approximately 60 percent of all crashes…
We do not know if there's a corresponding study in Turkey, but this past weekend in Beşiktaş, a municipality of Istanbul, a female driver of a latest generation Porsche 911 Turbo (997) with the license plate number "34 GTA 11" mistook the gas pedal for the brake as she was turning into a gas station to fill up her sports car.
The driver and her female friend were not hurt but a gas station employee had to be taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
After taking their statements, the police called a taxi for the two women who wrapped themselves in red sheets to avoid the cameras.
Kudos to Necmi for the tip!
