The Fourth Emergency Service

AA Renault Trafic

AA Renault Trafic

This miniland-esque creation is, for our overseas readers, an British ‘AA’ roadside assistance van. A common sight at the side of UK roads, they’re regularly seen helping those who’ve broken down, or far more likely, changing a wheel for someone who’s too incompetent to do so themselves. Ironically for anyone who’s owned a French car, the van is a Renault – we wonder what the AA will send out when the van itself breaks down… Anyhoo, the amazing¬†Ralph Savelsberg¬†aka ‘Mad Physicist’ is the builder behind it, and you can see more on Flickr.

  2. Love the commentary, unsurprisingly a friend of mine had to call the AA as he broke down on an ‘A’ Road and the exact thing happened as mentioned above – the aa van came, tried to fix my friends car but then couldnt tow it because the van broke down. my friend had to get a lift home from the lorry driver that picked up the recovery van!! Only in England.
