Carmageddon

04Mar14

The logic of local councils is beyond me.

At least two miles of my drive home from work is along streets filled with speed bumps. They’re called “traffic calming devices”, which is classic council double-speak. How can a passive word like “calming” be used to describe something that is designed to do violent damage to your car? The council have even painted them pink so they don’t look so aggressive.

They’re more concerned with the upkeep of the speed bumps than they are with the roads they’re on. Tonight I noticed that where a big pink chunk of speed bump had broken off, they’ve repaired it with a black tarmac patch. The roads are in a terrible state but instead of fixing them, the council are fixing the speed bumps!

The thing is, these roads are in such bad condition, there’s no need for speed bumps, you have to slow down for the pot holes!
