I sometimes wonder whether they ever got to figure out that they could have achieved the objective by increasing the throughput at the cashier service counters.
I remembered this this morning when I found that someone, too clever in half, has erected bumps on Mandera Road, Kileleshwa and for a good reason. The genius behind this decision I am made to believe is because of the bumps on Oloitokitok road.
You see, the new Oloitokitok road came equipped with numerous bumps that have made driving on that new road a nightmare (daymare too if you may). Now, many drivers have been complaining that in the section between Kileleshwa and Valley Arcade, it is faster to use the meandering Mandera/Othaya roads than the straighter and shorter Oloitokitok road.
So to correct the imbalance, Oh, how clever of them, the new Speed Bumps Authority, sometimes also called NTSA erected equalising bumps (I hear the constitutionally correct name is hump) on the Mandera/othaya Road circuit. I am sure you won't believe this but the problem was solved instantly - it now takes longer to drive on Mandera Road than Oloitokitok Road.
