Mayaguez LOVES speed bumps. On my route between school and my gym, I bump on top of more than 20! (my poor shocks). The city recently added two fresh ones. Did the residents request it? Who knows…but it has amounted to some hilarious passive aggressive behaviors.
When the bumps first arrived drivers were just avoiding one by driving on the grass around it. So someone stacked a tidy pile of rocks on the flat grass. A nice little way of saying, hey, don’t drive on the grass.
Which apparently didn’t keep people from not driving on the grass. So, someone added more piles of rocks.
Then one morning I saw the rocks had been painted red. Blood red. Like, it actually looked like blood. But that afternoon, someone else took said bloody rocks and spread out the tidy little piles.
A few days later Trevor told me he actually saw someone throwing the rocks into the bushes down the hill there. Sorry for the blurry pic. Someone was behind me and it was raining. Adios rocas. Hahaha. What next will we see? 🙂
I hate speed bumps. I honk when I go over them.
Protip: Those bumps pictured are weak. Hit them at 30 and you’ll fly right over them as if they weren’t there.
haha. Maybe I’ll try that. While honking!
