Tyre Killing Speed Breakers

Last but possibly the most interesting news from India, is the installation of new speed breakers that are designed to shred the tryres of anyone who dare ride down the wrong side of the road These tyre killers will be something like a speed-breaker but it'll have metal spikes on one side. So, if you're driving or riding in the right direction (that is on the left side of the road), you'll only be slowed down. However, you try to avoid taking a U-turn and think you'll only go a few metres down the wrong side, you've had it. The metal spikes will rip through the tyres
