Tar snakes...I commute on roads where I regularly encounter them....
Something has bothered me about them for a while...why are "they" (those that repair roads) allowed to use "slick"
material to fill cracks?
Has it been brought to "their" attention that it creates a dangerous situation for some
motorists who are operating DOT legal vehicles... I find it hard to believe that "they" are not aware that the seam sealer they currently use creates a slippery surface (at least for 6 months to a year, that is). It clearly seems "they" just don't care
...as in, like, "so what, who cares if the sealer creates a slick and slippery surface that can be dangerous for a small population of road users--that's their problem."
Really, how hard would it be to put some sort of "traction substance" in the sealant that would make it not be slippery?
I know I add a product to the paint I use on my deck and it gives it texture and makes it "grippy."
Back to your regularly scheduled programming....
