I Can't Believe Someone Threw Away A Perfectly Good Car

Advertisement by the public transportation shows a car thrown into a roll off dupmster. Has something ever caught your eye as you were driving and you had to turn around and go back and see it again? This contribution photo from swc was one of those instances. When I first saw the photos, I was a bit puzzled by it. Looking at what is printed on the side of the roll off box, it is nothing more than advertisement by the publicly funded bus system encouraging you to throw away your car and start using public transportation. Yep, that's my tax dollars paying for that odd, but very eye catching advertisement. I'm curious how much this cost for this setup and is this the only location that is advertising in this manner? Hummm....

The shock and the "what" is priceless and is money well spent. The guy who thought this up should be promoted or start his own agency.

A remarkable post.

Seeing this EXACT same car in the dumpster made me turn around to see what the heck was up. Interesting PSA.

LOL, that's what I should probably do with my gas guzzling F150. Filling that thing up has become a near traumatic event.

When I saw it I was in the big truck so I couldn't turn back to see what it was, glad you captured it, this is the only one I've seen in the metro.

There's also one at the 46th St. light rail station, or at least I saw something like that a couple weeks ago. Somebody pointed it out and neither he or I noticed it was an ad at first, but the next time I saw it, I thought there's little reason for a dumpster with a car to be right at the light rail station.
