Though city officials insist it’s safe to drive under the Gardiner Expressway in a convertible, the concrete-raining highway just claimed its first victim: yesterday, a five-inch chunk dented a two-door Mercedes travelling near Yonge and Lake Shore Boulevard (no one was injured). Coincidentally, the previous (of many) sky-is-falling incidents in Toronto saw glass crash down on a limousine downtown. We know there’s no surefire way to guess when the next outpouring of debris will be, but if you drive a fancy car, consider yourself a target. [Toronto Star]
