SPEED CONTROL IN CANADA
This is actually a speed control device that is in use. It will surely slow you down!

People slow down and try to "straddle" the hole, then breath a sign of relief they completely cleared it!

it is much cheaper than speed cameras.

Shades of Wiley Coyote! :lol:

I wonder how effective it is once people know about it... or if they start reporting potholes to be fixed and complaints pile up when the "holes" remain in place... :P

Reminds me a bit of the work of Jasper Maskelyne.

It's quite effective though, the roads in The Netherlands have suffered a lot lately with the frost and snow, and there's many big potholes.
