Because of the heat and humidity near the Australian city of Tarzali, asphalt melted . The road surface became viscous and wound on the wheels of several cars.

The Australian Department of Transportation had to cover the problematic section of the road. The authorities promised to compensate for the damage to all the victims.

June, July and August are considered to be the coldest months of the year in Australia, as the calendar winter sets on the continent at this time. The temperature on the coast in these months rarely rises above +20 degrees Celsius.
