    We could always use more 2-ton flaming projectiles in the big city.

    How much for a license to set up grandstands and charge people to watch?

    SUV Plunges Off Parking Garage's 5th Floor
    Condition Of Driver Not Immediately Known

    POSTED: 5:29 pm EST January 31, 2007
    UPDATED: 5:47 pm EST January 31, 2007

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- An SUV drove off the fifth floor of a parking garage at the University of Memphis on Wednesday.

    The driver --- a woman --- was taken to the Regional Medical Center in undetermined condition.

    Witnesses said the vehicle hit nose-first, scattering concrete that was knocked off the garage.

    The cause of the accident is under investigation.

    The woman was apparently the only person in the vehicle.

    I hope the driver is doing ok though.

    Imagine having to do the NFIRS report for each vehicle that was an exposure!

    I say you combine the fire suppression system from Ellsworth Air Force Base http://cellar.org/showthread.php?t=10491 with the concept of the parking garage robot and you've got yourself a fool proof product. Almost.

    Sprinklers?

    What sort of sprinkler laws are on the books in NYC? A car fire is no big deal if the complex is properly sprinkled.

    so... if car are practically stacked on top of one another.... if one car happens to catch on fire on say the very bottom level, fire rises, gastanks are barely protected underneath a car, eventually the fire climbs.... bang? and it keeps climbing, eventually the fire causes the beams holding the elevator system to weaken. The elevator falls apart, all the flaming cars come crashing to the ground.... now they are piled up, on fire on top of the cars that are still fine... chain reaction on 67 cars, good game?

    Well, according to the report, several of our European Brethern have experience with these as working garages. Any thoughts/comments from across the Pond?

    Thanks for the pics.

    If they will all be stored in seperate "rooms", which are connected to the building like the one pictured, then you now have a case of a structure fire versus that of a vehicle fire.

    This just looks like a bad idea all together. I wonder how difficult they are to access? I would hope the city would add to their list of codes to provide a stand pipe connection in each compartment, or room, or whatever.

    Interesting.... well, that'll last until the first one lights off, and the cars start
    popping like July 4th firecrackers.

    Then you'll see the biggest yard-sale of car-stacking equipment that'd make
    any trailer-park envious!
