Sure, there’s no arguing that a little breeze would be a refreshing change from the usual tropical heat we’re subjected to 365 days a year – a natural repercussion of living by the equator.

Here you have a school bus in Massachusetts, USA helplessly but gracefully sliding down a traction-free road. Imagine the horror of watching (or knowing that) your kid had been “ice-skating with bus”. But as always, you can count on a Toyota to be up for any tasks and in this case, holding back the bus from causing further damage. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

“Saved by the pole” – a statement rarely expressed by anyone, unless you’re in the constant frost white surroundings of Russia. Yes, the video may be a little dated but the memory of a near head-on collision with a thousand-tonne truck may never get old for those behind the camera of this footage.
