Hopefully it was an isolated accidental discharge by some dopy driver too busy on his phone to notice at the time and that he/she is the boss and not some boss whose only crime was to employ cretins.

Out with the rotary brush quick and hope it rains heavily before the rozzers get a wind of it. Seems an awful lot of sh!t coming from somewhere in the first picture though. :scratchhead:

As to the OP, it’s unlikely that a lump of stone big enough to damage a sump would have stuck to tractor tyres for long enough to have been brought out of a field onto a road during farming operations.
A stone that size is just as likely to have fallen off a load of stone, rubble or topsoil being moved by somebody working in the construction industry. It surprises me how much rubble, stone and topsoil is moved for weeks on end over long distances by tractors and dump trailers in this part of the world.

Lucky there was no MX-5s on the road looking to be filled to the brim.

Leaving slurry on the road to that depth is asking for someone to lose control and die.
There’s a farm next to a road that would look similar to the photo most days of the year. It absolutely mullered the road surface as it was so bad and the council have spent a lot of taxpayers money to relay the road surface damaged because it’s constantly bathed in slurry

Only way I can think of to get a stone of any appreciable size onto the road would be stuck between dual wheels

Unless of course it had fallen off a load, someone could have been picking stones I suppose
