You are driving in a car at a constant speed.
On your left side is a "drop off" - the ground is 45-50cm below the level you are travelling - and on your right side is a fire engine travelling at the same speed as you.
In front of you is a galloping horse, which is the same size as your car and you can't overtake it.
Behind you is a galloping zebra. Both the horse and zebra are also travelling at the same speed as you.
Q: What must you do to safely get out of this highly dangerous situation?

A: Get off the merry-go-round you're pissed.
