Another element can be seen between it and the truck: caution tape that was used to try to prevent cars from passing so that waves wouldn't form and flood the businesses and homes on the block. That tape was the sign the driver wanted to ignore.

Moments after the man's charge, the driver pressed the accelerator. The roar of the engine wore out the tape and so did the neighbor who managed to put his hands up to stop the impact. Squealing, he could not prevent the car from dragging him several meters on the hood.

Earlier, another neighbor expressed his anger about the condition of the drainage system, which, according to him, did not allow the water to drain and, therefore, liquid from rainfall accumulated on the street. The moment was captured by the mobile phone from the TN signal, which showed how the man violently threw the bicycle, which he received from the mayor Jorge Ferraresi.

“Ferraresi, the bike is there… They are stupid,” shouted the man who demanded a job from the head of the utility.
