The trouble is it is damn easy to drive into them. I’ve seen taxis with their front-ends in and their back ends up in the air. I’ve seen the right half of a Land Cruiser go in so the other two wheels are up in the air and the entire car is balanced on its axles.

Yesterday, I saw a big Mercedes lorry go in.

Problem with open sewers... Don't drive off the edge of the road

I don’t know how they got that thing out but it was gone in the morning.

Obstacle

On the way home from school with the kids, I came across a bit of an obstacle in the road. Someone left a bit of machinery parked in my way and went home for the day. What isn’t obvious from the photo is that there were cars piled up behind me blaring and a u-turn is nearly impossible because of the open sewer.

I did manage to get around this behemoth by squeezing between it an the sign on the right.
