Uganda, we need to talk about speed bumps

Uganda loves speed bumps.  Its as if they cannot get enough of the pot holes on the murram roads, that when there is a lovely piece of flat tarmac then it seems to be obligatory to stick a million speed bumps on it.

I assume this is to slow down the mental minibus drivers (it doesn't, they just swerve off the road to miss them).  But when your average speed is already only about 20mph and your undercarriage is already completely wrecked, a 3 foot high speed bump is NOT REQUIRED.

It would be so much better if the speed bumps were removed and the materials then put into the pot holes.  Problem solved.
