In news just to hand, a bus on which Zubaz and Jafo were traveling was involved in a minor accident. The driver made a sudden emergency stop and they were tail-ended by a truck. Apparently the driver was distracted by a reflection on the windshield of Zubaz's zebra skin pants and thought he had to make an emergency stop to avoid hitting a pedestrian on a zebra crossing.
The driver later said that he felt so stupid, that he had traveled that route numerous times and should have known there was no pedestrian crossing there. However, he also stated the windshield reflection was very realistic and that it could have happened to anyone.
The city transit authority is now seeking an audience with the mayor to discuss banning zebra skinned pants on public transport to prevent such accidents happening again. Other groups, however, are calling for the banning of zebra skin pants in all public places after a drunk thought he was on a zebra crossing and was almost hit by on-coming traffic. Witnesses say it is a miracle both men were not seriously injured in the confusion.
Meanwhile, while the drunk is cursing Mr Zubaz for causing the incident, Mr Zubaz is wondering how he ended up underneath a drunk in the middle of the street... how on earth he is going the get the alcohol smell out of his clothing before his wife goes ape-shit and accuses him of hitting the bottle again.
