CALIFORNIA (OCN) — After having a bit of car trouble on Monday and being followed by photographers, the American pop singer had to abandon her Mercedes SL amid rush-hour traffic. It was later impounded because it was “blocking the roadway” according to LAPD spokesperson Mike Lopez.
“This could have been prevented” says Dominic Toretto of Toretto Auto Supply on Sunset Boulevard. “If she had run-flat tires on her car, she could have kept going to somewhere safe or even to my shop.”
Run-flat tires are designed to resist the effects of deflation and and to enable a vehicle to drive at to a safe location at at reduced speeds (i.e. 80 km/h or 50 mph).”
Ms. Spears car will be placed on the public auction block if she fails to pick up the vehicle within 30 days.
Mr. Toretto say if the car goes on the auction block, he will bid on the Mercedes and raffle it off to his patrons.
