    Car breaks down and this pushes it out of the way, simple idea and the fastest way to clear the obstruction.

    If your car got damaged as a result you could claim the damages, what's your problem with it?

      Car would need to be able to be started? Power steering, brakes, what about if it was an auto trans car?

        New Zealand cops shunt cars off the road with cop cars, it beats them sitting in the way of traffic like they do here, or being parked half on the road, damage is minimal to none they don't hit at 60 or push at speed, they just idle up to make contact and push just above walking pace.
        Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

        when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

          Can still put an auto in neutral.

          The tunnel is pretty straight so limited non power steering would still work and you'd probably only be getting pushed at a few km/h.

            Yep, sounds like a decent enough idea to me. It will probably cost us $200,000 a year to operate though.

            As long as they don't try to shunt a bike.

              Great idea, underground you just ram the fuckers and push them out the way. Ute to ute, sparks twisted metal, clear the way.
              A soft push pad will be pritty harmless, Also adds a huge safty aspect.

                I can see news headlines of a bunch of drunk bogans from the paramount hotwiring it and going on a rampage.

                  Need to get the thing to clear nice twisty roads ahead of a ride, put some brushes on the bottom to sweep the street at the same time... Brilliant.

                        maybe they could use it on the freeways too. When a car crashes or breaks down they push it up the next available off ramp so everyone else doesnt slow down to 30km/h to have a look

                          I've seen many car drivers apply the same theory of this machine to motorcyclists... they're so kind that they don't even wait for the motorcyclist to have broken down or even stopped for that matter.

                            Why not just tow. Shunting ain't gonna work through the curves...plus it's an Outlander...

                              Are you serious? Please tell me you're not mechanically minded, then I can excuse

                              So long as the key is in the ignition, steering turns. Sure you might have to work those weedy arms a bit, but you can steer, same with the brakes. Also as mentioned, auto trannies can be put on Neutral... who'd a thunk that?


                              Can't believe it's taken this long!
