Two Speed Bumps Placed Too Close To Each Other Send Cars Flying

Regardless of whether you call them speed bumps or speed humps, we can all agree that they can be an annoyance but in lots of areas, are necessary to slow down traffic and minimize speeding. However, placing two of them in tandem? That seems bizarre.

The ’11 Foot 8’ bridge is perhaps the most famous road obstacle that has gone viral in recent years but a new YouTube channel we recently stumbled across, dubbed Speed Bump Olympics, might give that famous bridge a run for its money.

For roughly a month, the owner of the channel has been sharing videos of vehicles speeding across the two speed bumps located directly in front of their house. We have no idea why someone thought it would be a good idea to place two large speed bumps so close together. However, it does make for some interesting footage.

Many drivers approach the first speed bump with far too much speed, likely thinking that they can get over it without slowing down. They’re then confronted with the second speed bump that sends many of them bouncing into the air. All kinds of drivers and vehicles can be seen getting caught out by the speed bumps, including a police officer driving a Ford Explorer who you would think would be aware of the dual speed bumps if they frequently patrol the area.

The cars featured in the clip suffer all kinds of bumps and scrapes. Some scratch their undertrays along the speed bumps, sending sparks flying into the air. Others bounce up and down, causing damage to their front and rear bumpers. Remarkably, the individual behind the YouTube channel says he has lived opposite the speed bumps for 11 years and that they have never actually seen a crash caused by them.
