  1. Ofcourse, there are some places in Saudi Arabia and Philipines have also some of such wonders occures. You can see cars moving up the hill if kept in nutril (gear). But very slow in speed like 1 or 2 men push it. But some certain places like 1 or 2 KM only it ocures. It is upto the scientists who help us to give a clarification for this.
