Video of the Week: Car topples IBA machine

AKRON, Ohio — One driver does not heed the command to stop.

AKRON, Ohio — Making sure drivers understand how to use a carwash is critical.

However, as this video shows, sometimes even flashing lights may not get through to them.

In a YouTube video from LiveLeak, a driver pulls into an in-bay automatic (IBA) carwash.

However, the driver does not heed the flashing “STOP” signs and tries to drive through it as the brushes are rolling over it.

Luckily, the IBA stops moving the brushes as the car tries to move; unfortunately, the driver then tries to push the brushes aside with the car, ending in disaster.

Watch the entire video below.
