Yes, Oketch! You're so very right.

These roads engineers are upto something. They do the shoddiest of jobs which after every rainfall results in their 'work' (if you can even call it THAT!), gets washed away. Why is this?

There is also the matter of being discriminate regarding the kinds of vehicles allowed on most urban roads.

Unfortunately, ALL kinds of vehicles are allowed on ALL of our roads, indiscriminately causing not just traffic jams in urban centres but, the roads also get damaged because they are not made to carry such heavy traffic, e.g. trailers, lorries, trucks, containers, etc. If you add this kind of traffic to shoddily made roads with questionable drainage, the results are the pathetic roads we now have to use to our detriment. 

These kinds of roads and legislation, cause accidents, damage to life and property and of course our public transport system adds to the chaos. All of them are extremely unruly and undisciplined.

So, despite paying heavy taxes, we still suffer more pain and loss!
