#1616: Bottlebouncer

When I drive to the bottlebank, the area in front is always covered with shards of glass. People sometimes miss the aperture of the bank or trip en route to it from their vehicle.

Today’s invention is a simple way to avoid all those perforated tyres: a resilient rubber mat (blue) which covers the tarmac for a couple of car-widths from the bank itself.

Any glassware which hits the deck will not break and is retained within a low dam that can easily be driven over.
