Watering bitumen

As a motorcyclist I'm acutely aware of the huge quantities of water wasted on lawns – water that fruitlessly ends up on pavement and on me as I ride past. With a strong easterly over the past few days, huge quantities of water ends up blown into the streets. Then there's the local council's park watering with large mis-aimed sprinklers active most mornings, directing huge quantities of water many meters out onto the bitumen making it impossible for passing vehicles not to get drenched. It's a cruel joke that precious water is being so wasted.
