Surfaces 2

Second one is 'platforms' or 'tables', often added as part of traffic calming measures.

If you're approaching on - even if in a car - look to see how high the platfoem is compared to the road surface.

Often they won't have the same degree of camber as the road, so my be less of a bump nearer the centre.

Also, under continuous impact from passing traffic, they often start to collapse in the wheel-track areas, so it's often worse those sections if the 'slope' has been damaged.

Check the picture above for an example of the oil drips from yesterday's post.
