R59 Governmental Gross Stupidity!!

Post by Johann65 » Sun 17 Mar 2013, 18:24

The Highway Roads Maintenance have just proved their incompetence and stupidity that has cost the motorist Thousands of Rands :? :?
Where have you seen that you paint all the road lined and do a great Job and the following day or so destroy all the paint work by spraying the road with tar, No warning signs to the public leaving them with the mess!! 8O 8O This all on the R59 in the Henley area! 8O 8O Look at my Wife's Car!! :evil: :evil:
Fortunately it is coming off by painting the tar with soft Margerine and letting it stand see how the margerine absorbs the tar and the dogs taking a lick!! :? It then washes off with a strong BioClassic solution. Rear end completed. Lot of work Monday!! :cry: :cry:

They did the same spray job on the N14 between Krugersdorp and Pretoria over the last 2 weeks - ball's up of epic proportion. Then they also do it at peak time in the morning and evening. Paraffin removes most of it but in my case still leaves a stain - maybe depens on the type of paint on the car.
