How Do You Feel About Speed Bumps/Humps?

These were recently installed on a street near my house, and I hate them. When an ambulance/fire engine needs to speed by, what are they to do?

  3. There are ones in my neighborhood that are so low and wide that they don't even do anything! I dont even slow down for them and I barely feel anything. Waste of money...

  4. I think that is cause people to speed. I slow down to go over the bump, then speed up to makeup for slowing down. I just repeat for every bump until i hit a stop sign.

  8. They make sweet jumps!

    In all seriousness, speeders are bad and dangerous, and these are good for society. However, some people go overboard and make them tiny hills more than bumps.

  9. A bad idea. I'd like to see more original ideas to keep speeding down.

  10. they're more dangerous than speeding. when i was learning to ride a motorcycle one of my biggest fears was going over a speed bump. hit the bump, your hand slips a bit and rolls open the throttle, instant wheelie, possible bad crash.

  11. The fire engines wheels are so big, it don't matter. If sucks when you wanna drive over them though.

  12. yeah speed bumps are garbage...considering how poorly maintained the roads are where I live, it's just more beating on the suspension

  16. they're good for car parks because it prevents idiots from speeding in there and killing an innocent child, but in a suburb street sound ridiculous

  19. I really dislike speedbumps, especially the ones on my college campus. They're kinda hard to describe, but they're really narrow and rather tall. So much so that going over them (even at a slow speed) snapped my front suspension...
