I have been enquiring with friends about the amount of what I thought was oil all over the roads in Canberra. Im amazed at just how much we get on the roads here, most noteably around roundabouts.
I’ve since found out that this oil is actually diesel and it drops from the buses.
Apparently the seals on the diesel fuel caps for the buses gets worn after a while and rather than replace them on a regular basis, Action prefer to wait until enough people have accidents caused by the diesel trails before they fix the problem.
Why is this considered acceptable in this Territory? I just cant believe the amount of dropped diesel there is on our roads. Am I alone in thinking that this is a problem that should be constantly checked and enforced?
