Travelling to and from work and around Canberra I often encounter roads which have been ‘re-sealed’ by the loose stone and hot tar method. Whatever your vehicles may be worth, it is inevitable that your car will incur some sort of damage from loose stones being thrown up by other vehicles or wet tar adhering to your paint. Today, on a short drive down Drakeford Drive near Isabella Plains my car sustained 3 chips to the windscreen even though I followed the 60Kmh speed limit.
I’ve had enough of this cheap, penny-pinching method of re-sealing roads and call upon fellow Canberrans to tell the government if this doesn’t stop, a class action could be in the pipeline. What do others think?
