Earlier this week I was surprised by the way that a whole bunch of speed bumps have vanished from the roads that I take to work. I was carefully slowing down and steering round things that weren't there any more. Very strange. Now some of the road around the missing speed bumps has been annotated in white spray paint with little lines and things like "3.5/4.2 x". I'm tempted to get a spray can and change some of the numbers, if they are replacing the speed bumps it might be fun to get one six feet high.
Then again, maybe not.
