Hi Muwinte, welcome to the forum! I am having trouble picturing what type of pipe you are talking about. Like a length of pipe lying on the road? In any case, these would be some alternatives:

Your car is stopped on a pipe.
Your car’s tyre is on a pipe.
Your tyre is on a pipe.
You’re parked on a pipe.

the pipe” would only be used if you were already talking about this particular pipe.

Hello Muwinte, welcome to our forum. I take it you wanted to write ‘You’re stepping on the pipe’?

I’m still trying to imagine what the expression ‘stepping the pipe’ might mean in this context. Do you mean 'step on the accelerator to speed up?
