Today, I have been driving on quite a long journey, from Triolet to Albion (via Grande Rivière), then to Flic en Flac and back home through Palma and Quatre Bornes.
I would say a journey full of speed humps(aka speed breakers), I have stopped counting when the count reached 20.
Since the visit of Mr the President of the People’s Republic Of China, all the speed humps have been removed along the roads which the presidential officials will be using. The removal of those traffic calming devices had cost several hundreds of thousand of rupees to the Government.
A few days later some of them were put back in place, while some were replaced by newer ones.
After testing both of them since a few months now, I prefer the first one because it is less painful for the car as well as the passengers!
I guess that the new model was introduced probably because it is much easier and cheaper to remove compare to the model used in the whole of Mauritius.
I don’t know which one you prefer but going over the new model is quite a nightmare for you, your passengers as well as for your vehicle!
