Speed bumps

There are 36 speed bumps in the 10-km drive from town to our village. Thirty six! Twenty six are in the 7-km stretch that's tarmac. (Yip. That means that our gravel road with all it's potholes and ditches still has speed bumps, too!)

Until this week, the main road between here and town had only about 15, maybe. I was so happy when I saw the city trucks putting down new tarmac on stretches of the road to town, thinking they're filling up potholes. Instead, they added more speed bumps... I honestly think that at least half the potholes on the roads could've been filled with the tar the government uses to build speed bumps.

I don't get it! Perhaps someone can explain it to me.
