Oil on the road

Whiteway Road between the Newton road and The Hollow turnings has become extremely slick, specially when it rains due to the oil that is being continually dropped on the road by the buses going up the hill. On 2 occasions recently I've had close calls due to the back tire of my motorcycle almost sliding out from under me due to the oil. It's become increasingly bad over the past month or so and it's only a matter of time before someone has an accident on that stretch of road.
