Brilliant Speed Control in Canada

I don’t know about you, but this would slow me down! People slow down and try to “straddle” the hole, then breathe a sign of relief they completely cleared it!

This is actually a marketing stunt designed for manufacturers of vehicle suspensions. Scroll down and look at all three pictures.





Pretty clever, huh??? Especially if moved around each day. Isn’t art wonderful?

The Concern would be that the road users might not slow down and drive into the VERY REAL threat of actual pot holes!

Or what if someone swerved to avoid the hole and hit another vehicle or had an accident of some sort.

Stupid marketing idea if you ask me. I'd be mad enough to not ever buy that manufacturers suspension products.

You would have seen me slow way down and take a shoulder if one was available. I would have become a traffic "hazzard".

Great way to get the politicos to stir the pot on where municipal funds are going...
