We have all had bumps in the road of life. But in this post, there is an interesting thing I have seen in the Philippines in the town where they go to market. In the village, there are no hard surface streets so traffic is usually slow.
What do you do when you have traffic going past your home that is prone to going too fast? In the USA, you would go through a hearing process and traffic studies. Then you might possibly get a sign posted to reduce the speed limit.
If not, then you get to start the process all over again until you either give up or someone finally sees things your way.
We all have the Walter Mitty desires to get things accomplished but it isn’t usually done. I will show two ways that it isn’t usually done, and then how it is commonly done in Sindangan.
There is a video of a German man’s Walter Mitty style dream.
The other is an insanely aggressive speed bump. If you don’t slow down, you would likely see your vehicle in pieces.
The Philippine answer is a do it yourself method that works very well since most of the traffic is tricycles and motorcycles. As you can see from the pictures, they cut the treads off of tires and put them on the road. It is effective, simple, and doesn’t require a mountain of governmental paperwork.
