Dear Editor, CAN you find the people responsible for looking after Majorca's road network? I doubt there is a reader who doesn't agree, Majorca's roads and motorways are, in fact, dangerous. I'm not saying there aren't a lot of drivers who actually make the roads dangerous because there are. e.g those that don't use the overtaking lane for specifically that purpose they just tootle along in it, oblivious to other road users and the Highway code. That's an issue for education and awareness and I would like to see a scheme imposed to rectify this situation. Still, I have digressed without highlighting the more important need for action. We are let down completely by Majorca's road maintenance team. Am I the only one that has noticed that the tarmac becomes as slippy as an ice rink after the first rains that follow a long hot summer? Has noone put two and two together? There is a massive accumulation of oil and grease on the road surface during our dry summers, the rain falls on it and hey presto! Stopping distances have just doubled or even trippled.
Why weren't the roads degreased in time? Why have the roads NEVER been degreased at all EVER? Would the cost of the necessary solvents outweigh that of the Taxpayers Life?Of course not, and then the relief to the emergency services and knockon effect to hospital beds etc. I don't think they actually care about our lives at all. Or what about this one? In accordance with the Highway code, What is the correct speed to enter a motorway? I guess your readers are all calling out different answers but to be correct, there is only one answer...... The same speed as the traffic already on the motorway! Obvious really isn't it. So can you find out why some motorway slip roads have been built with such tight corners that only the world's supercars and sports cars could possibly accelerate in time?
