IG Motorrad: Landmines

Slippery manhole covers and slick road markings are some of the reasons why Switzerland suffers nearly 800 motorcycle accidents each year. Together we can clear the road for more safety and fun when riding our motorcycles.

Yes seeing such a road would frighten any intellectual motor rider.

But, I think most of those accidents come from rider-mistakes, not from roads. They choose those roads themselves.

Anyway, that's off-topic, I'm judging the ad, not the cause. And as I said, it's frightening so it works I suppose.

They might want to re-translate that.

... and what does it mean "Together we can clear the road..." What is it exactly people should or can do? A probable solution is missing isnt it?

I was wondering about the same... what do you do with slippery manhole covers? Go there and dry them one by one after each rain? Or are you collecting money to change them to non-slippery ones (if there is such a thing)?

Too safe. Too dumbed down.
