Around my place of work there are numerous speed bumps. It pains me each and every day when I'm walking by the speed bumps and people drive over them @ 20-30 miles an hour. I mean they just roll right over them things and I can hear the shocks shriek. I don't understand how people think that is an okay thing to do. I go over them things like a snail.

That's all I came here to say because I needed to scream into the void my disdain for people mistreating their suspensions like this.

Have a good weekend ya'll.

My opinion they can drive how they want as long as they are within the speed limit. In fact its their car and I could care lest if they are alone if they drive it off a cliff. Because I'm not the one paying to maintain the car they drive.

My employer shares parking with a distrubution center. Tractor trailers in and out all day and man, you talk about noise. Sounds like a bomb goes off when they blast over the speed bumps. Sometimes you see the tires bounce on the trailer.

A kid drove over a speed hump in my neighborhood about 40 mph. Heard a large crunch, then another, then another. Totally busted out his front and rear and left pieces in the road. But the good news is he limped back down the street doing about 25 mph. I guess it took him doing $4k in car damage to realize he should slow down in a neighborhood. spank

In one of the neighbourhoods we lived, there was a long but deep dip in the pavement. If you were driving a reasonable speed there was no problem - you hardly noticed it. But a few people drove down the street too fast and I heard a number of ungodly crunches. At least one guy got out to look under his vehicle.

I'd guess that a high speed drive through our neighbourhood would have been a one time thing.

If half the population had the bad back problems that I have had speed bumps of any type would be illegal. Before I had the IDET procedure performed my back was so bad that any bump or pothole was like a knife to my back no matter how slow I went.

I know speed bumps may sometimes be necessary to prevent speeding in areas where children play, and I have even once caught up with a teenager driver who had opened it up in an alley in the summer time where kids play and I really balled him out and let him know how stupid what he just did was, but one of the things that is not considered when speed bumps are installed is how much pain it causes people with bad backs.


Boy will I be happy when ALL vehicles on public roads are autonomous.

My first car had headers. That trained me to take speed bumps slowly.

When teaching our youngest son to drive in the Mercedes C220, we kept telling him to slow down over speed bumps and rail crossings. ''I am !'' he said...''Not enough'' we said. Then one day he was driving in my Nissan....''Oh, I see what you mean about speed bumps in this.'' Some cars are good on these things....Mercedes and Landcrabs.

There are also plastic removable speed bumps. Those should be illegal and even banned. What I don't like about them is they have trapezoidal cross section. They are just overly harsh to drive over. They also make me glad my car is not lowered at all. At one end of one of them is enough space I can bypass the bump easily enough. My guess is that they only come as sections and in one length but are connectable. I don't despise speed bumps when they are a gentler profile that is a permanent part of the lot but those plastic things MUST GO!!!

Because he may be the 1st buyer of that lease vehicle with a loose front end. Once it gets turned-in after 36 months of fast driving speed bumps.

If you’re worrying about something like that, odds are you’re not buying a used vehicle.

When my high school was built they put multiple speed bumps in the main entrance. That lasted a year, as people would drive through the grass to avoid the speed bump LOL
