Humor "Here's a question for you: what have the Nazi wartime test facility at Peenemunde and the Australian city of Perth got in common? Well, the first thing (and just about the only thing, truth be told) which springs to mind is that they are both next to large bodies of water. This is useful if you're going to test things which might go bang. Like V-2 rockets and - wait for it - flying cars."

I'll spoil the fun for everyone now. Down here our road safety advertising can get out of hand (way out of hand). Instead of building better safer roads the states spend big on things like bolting smashed cars up on billboards with things like "Speed kills" etc etc. StringCheesian was on the ball.

Personally I think the explanation previously given by Rinnan is more plausible: there was probably another car parked there for considerable time, which left the black patch behind when it was removed. It would be a pretty shitty location for an advertisement, and it'd need to be pretty damn high, looking at the shadows of other stuff on the picture.

Anyone who lives near the place around? ;)

Yeah...are they still doing that in other states? In NSW we stopped this when some people were getting a little upset back in the 90's when the car their son died in got strapped to one of those "speed kills" roadside advertisements. That seems like a plausible explanation to me.
