Tire shredded on highway 401 at 100 km/h

by ,

My back-left tire shredded itself while I was driving on the 401 two hours ago.
The car’s in the shop and my day remains pretty much on schedule, strangely enough.
It helps that I took today off to go to court, drive someone to the airport and go get new tires!

I made it to court 30 minutes after I had to pull over on the 401, so that worked out.
As a bonus, my ticket was withdrawn, so I basically got off. Woo.

Now I wait to see if the garage we use can slap on a temporary tire so I can (a) drive someone to the airport around 1pm, and (b) drive out to Pickering to get our new tires put on the car!

family, hardware, Reid.
