Fake. Cars can't get struck by lightning. The only way it could is if you didn't have any tires on the car, and even then the lightning would just travel along the exterior of the car and go into the ground.

Contrary to myth, while rubber does indeed not conduct electricity, the rest of your metal car will. The only reason why it'd not hurt you is because it's grounded and would go through the car instead of you, since that would be the shorter route. The only way this user would deserve it would be if he was like some of the hicks I have living around here and their 10' antennas.

oh my god will the morons talking about tires please stop. it doesn't protect the car at all. how the hell do u think it hits the car? through air... tires won't help at all. and yes you're right ^ sure he might not be hurt but the electrical surge could blow out all of his wiring and computer system his radio his gauges everything

Should the metal outside not protect the inside from damage? I thought that when there is a metal shell around something if it gets hit by electricity (lighting) the inside would be unaffected. Or is it that the magnetism caused by the lightning still affects the wiring inside, causing the surge?

I say this FML is BS. Unless you didn't have RUBBER wheels. Because lightning only hits objects that are grounded. Rubber can not ground electricity.

thanks for the help pendatik. however is there any constraints to the information? does it resemble one in every 750000 cars on the road, or one in every 750000 minutes while in the road? or one in every 750000 seconds on the road during a storm...?or?

haha ok no probs. I'm actually curious as to what it is relates to. It can't be just one in 750000. But it's getting late-ish here and I cbf researching. night.

fake... rubber Tyres earth the car making it a less than 1 in several billion chance that it could be struck by lightening. if ever caught in a thunder storm it is recomended you get in the car because it's just about the safest place to be... unless you park it under a tree...
