On June, the Sun is climbing high in the sky, heating strngly the asphalt as the air stay relatively lukewarm. Some bright patches looking like pools are appearing at the surface of the road. In fact, it's an inferior mirage, the same phenomenon visible at the horizon when the air is cold and the sea warmer. The vehicles seems to reflect on the road.
