“Also I am one of those drivers that takes humps at 10 to 20km/h”
“If you're in a hurry then go drive on a race track”
Are you also one of those people that drive 90 km/h in a 120 zone on the freeway?
the physical barricades work well on quieter roads (forces cars to stop and treat it like a circle, only no cheating).
Seriously, same problem where I live though. It is like a bunch of farmers with 4x4s that don't know there are other kinds of vehicles out there that built the things...
You can't trust a meta-ethical moral relativist since such a person can abuse reason to justify any act.
i feel sorry for the people who live right at the speedbumps: cars gearing down and then pulling away with much more noise than a car just cruising by!

Those little diamond-shaped individual bumps, or the little metal dome bumps are hell on a bike.
At my work we have the diamond ones on our internal roads. The Bikers have removed just 1 or 2 in strategic locations to facilitate bikes being able to pass through the gaps. As a result, bikers will slow down to align themselves with the gaps, while the actual bumps reduce the vehicle speeds.
If I encounter a bumps that are too high while on my bike, you can be damn sure that I will stop in the middle of the road if I have to to get around/over the bump without damaging my baby. I don't care if I cause a traffic jam - they wanted to put the bumps there, they have to deal with the consequences of me not being able to go over them and blocking up the traffic.
It's one of the few things I will be hardegat about.
I hate this type.
feels like the wheels are going to come off.
There are only 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.
So do we actually have any regulations on these things?
The ones at Disa Park in Vredehoek are small (400mm wide and 70mm high) but the maximum speed over these is 5km/hr. Last time I was there, there was a silencer and piece of curved pipe lying next to the kerb.
Its quite a funny cycle, bumps get bigger.
Car manufacturers design better suspension with more travel and bigger wheels.
in another 10 years they are going to look like table mountain.
I actually scraped the undercarriage of my old Ferrari once pretty bad on one of those metal type speed humps, in an office building parkade. Those things need to go, period.
