On Tortola they paint yellow stripes over the speed bumps so you can notice them..but beware if you are walking..when the yellow stripes get wet they are like ice. I took a header this morning outside Sebastian's and I should know better. Whatever that paint is they use, add a little dropped motor oil and whoosh..be careful out there!

I want to laugh. But thought I had better ask first. Are you okay?

A little sand mixed in the paint would fix that. If only sand were easily available!

Did the same thing years ago walking out to the point at CGB past the gas station. Fell on my face. Broke a bead in my beard.., Could have been a tooth..Careful of those speed bumps.
