    confused Central England...... now a beach destination?

    I live in drousey south Leicestershire, not much happens, so you tend to notice changes pretty easily.

    For some unknown reason the council has decided to put sand down on all the roundabouts near Market Harborough and south of Leicester. Now to my knowledge the only reason sand is used is to mop up oily type fluids? (waterbased fluids are left for the rain to sort out?)

    But they have done this around the entire circumference and on every roundabout in the local area. Some roundabouts have more-or-less cleared the few weeks it has been down.

    But had another moment this morning which I consider slightly dangerous.

    Cars now understeering when coming around the inside of you when turning right and going a bit fast, but some of them are having problems braking as well. And this morning combined with the damp conditions, TC decided to have a right moment. Ended up with me, bunnyhopping down the road looking a bit special.

    Does anyone know why they have done this sand laying tactic?
