I was on my way to Utica to a party tonight. I had five passengers in the car excluding me.... (I know, I know lol).... So I was going down some 2 lane road at 12am... Speed limit was 55mph.... There was a sign that said "Road work speed limit 40mph"... So I slowed down and I was now going about 45mph... All of a sudden there was a little dip and THERE WAS NO MORE PAVEMENT!!!!! IT WAS ALL GRavel, AND MOON CRATERS!!!!!!!! THe car was violantly vibrating and dipping and diving.... After I was able to slow down, I was able to creep through the rest of this patch of road at 5-10mph WHICH WAS THE FASTEST I WAS ABLE TO GO WITHOUT HITTING SOME OF THE BUMPS KIND OF HARD... IMAGINE WHAT IT FELT LIKE AT 45MPH!!!!!!
After I got back on pavement, I pulled over and everything seemed fine... What pissed me off was all the sign said was ROADWORK.... ANd 40MPH...
It should have said "Uneven pavement", or "ROUGH ROAD" OR 15MPH!!!!!!!!
I got a bit of anger and punched a little indentation into the middle of my steering wheel...:( I dont normally do things like that but I just lost it because I didnt expect something so irresponsible by the construction co./workers..... I mean I couldve seriously damaged something (especially with 6 people total in the car!!!!!) My baby is good to me though
