Mattress on roiad

7 months ago...more

I noticed a bit of a traffic jam ahead. The road has (or had) a reputation for speeding and crashes, so my immediate thought was another crash. As I got closer, I noticed a couple of people were moving an object, a mattress, off the road. Initially, they were going to leave it on the path! Not sure if they heard me yelling into the wind or if they decided themselves to instead leave the mattress on the nature strip. Good job of the driver and passenger to remove the mattress from the road. I do wonder how many people had driven around it until these people removed it.
