Whoops!

I'd guess that damage would only occur if this happened at speed. The roof would probably just start to lift 'normally'.

I've gone to wave at someone really quickly through the roof and realized it was still there and cracked my fingers on it!

I get the feeling I'm going to miss my cabby now :sad
