Britney Spears' ability to drive and brains strike again. She drove her car 2 miles with a flat tire and than abandoned it in the middle of the street during rush hour.

Later that day a private company impounded her car, which I believe did her a big favor. It’s much easier to abandon a car with a flat tire and few hour later to get it back for a hundred dollars or so, than wasting your time getting it fixed.

According to

"Ms. Spears's car was impounded," Lt. David Grimes of the Los Angeles Police Department, West L.A. station, said – after a flat tire had caused the troubled pop star to leave her white Mercedes in the middle of the road in Brentwood, Calif.

"Officers on the scene told me it was blocking the roadway," said Grimes, "and that it was unsafe enough to leave at the location."

After she had left the car, Spears – who had ventured away from her Studio City home to go to a drugstore – was given a lift by a paparazzo who had been trailing her.

As for her Mercedes, "It was towed by a private company that's contracted with the city," said Grimes. "Her car is being held at the official police garage tow yard."

The standard pricing at the Quicksilver Towing facility is a $104 towing fee, plus $32 for each day it remains in the tow yard. If the car isn't picked up within 30 days, it gets put up for auction, an employee told PEOPLE.
