Brilliant Speed Control in Canada

The Arrive Alive website received an email from a South African road user titled :”How’s this for speed control?”

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

  4. sorry, these are fake. I’ve never seen them. I’ve googled them hundreds of times and everytime there’s just these three pics. I’m pretty sure someone had a lot of time in their hands and decided to do something with Photoshop.

    • This is not a speed control technique by Canadian govt bro. Its not even canada. Its an Advt in India, Mumbai. Check the autorickshaws in 3rd pic.
