Generally, there are some pretty typical and standard signs that it is getting hot in Malta.
But one speedbump in Mosta may be about to become the new national bellwether on hot weather as it slowly begins to melt, gradually disappearing as each day becomes hotter and hotter.
Cars have casually been scraping the bottom of their cars as they drive over the liquefying sleeping policeman
The speed bump, which is located in Triq il-Kbira, Mosta (heading towards Naxxar), was installed months ago, following the removal of a stronger, more concrete speedbump a metre away from the current melty bump.
The tarmac, which has been pushed down by passing vehicles, has been piling up at the sides and centre of the bump, while the areas where the tyres actually ride over the bump have been pushed down under the weight of vehicles.
It is 2019, and we are installing speed bumps that are so low quality, they’re slowing drivers down not because they are worried about hitting a bump at high speeds, but because they don’t want to be sucked into a bottomless tar pit.
Whatever works, I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
