Roads are melting around the country as the summer heat hits New Zealand.
As the roads absorb the heat, the bitumen below the chip seal melts and rises to the road surface. Not only does this cover vehicles in a sticky mess, it makes the road surface slippery and increases the risk of skidding.
The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) is spraying down road surfaces with water to cool them down.
The NZTA says motorists can clean the bitumen on their vehicle using baby oil and kerosene.
