Today's award goes to a motorist in Paris, France. (A tip o' the hat to reader Snoggeramus in Australia for bringing the story to my attention.)
A MAN drove his car down the steps of a Metro station in central Paris, mistaking the entrance for that of a parking garage.
"There's a sign saying 'Haussmann Parking' right in front [of the subway entrance], and ... I made a mistake," the distraught driver said, noting that the entrance was nearly level with the street.
"Luckily, there was no one on the stairs," the 26-year-old said, giving his name only as Johan. No one was hurt, and the car, a Dacia Duster, also escaped damage.

Good thing it wasn't a moving escalator!
