Although they are essential to calm the "crazy road", speed killers sometimes penalize drivers, users and vehicles.
Bottling, insecurity, discomfort and wear of vehicles … users and residents today complain about the establishment of 3 speed bumps by the Ministry of Public Works on the ring road of the Francophonie, on the way to Ankazomanga.
Risks of "bike-jacking" because of speed bumps
The "bike-jacking" or practice of "flight by aggression" is currently a technique now widespread in Antananarivo. Concealed, the attackers wait for their "prey" (a motorcycle rider on the handlebars of a motorcycle) near the breaker. When the biker slows down at the level of the latter, the thugs rush on him and beat him. Taking advantage of the surprise effect, they then run away with the vehicle.
With these 3 shifters installed by the Ministry of Public Works on the ring road of the Francophonie, no doubt that in the evening, this road will belong to junkies and assailants who will not hesitate to attack anyone who cross their path. Especially since this road is devoid of lighting making visibility relatively precarious for motorcycles and cars. Currently, it is not recommended to ride on this red zone beyond 19 hours.
On social networks, a great dissatisfaction has been noted and the situation is degenerating. These 3 devices in particular began to generate a traffic jam. Note that if the duration of the trip on the bypass of the Francophonie could previously be done in 3 minutes, today, it takes more than 7.
Even if they have been introduced in a safe will, these shocks have some disadvantages that must be taken into account!
