Woman mistakes subway for underground car park

A German woman mistook a subway entrance for an underground car park and her vehicle got stuck on the stairs, the BBC reports. The 52-year-old drove her Volkswagen Beetle across the pavement in central Duesseldorf and into the entrance where it ground to a halt about five steps down. Police estimated the damage at around 1,500 euros (1,000 pounds).

A similar incident happened four years ago in the same underground station, when a 50-year-old man from Dortmund also mistook it for an underground car park. Better signs might be in order, we think.
