I am a Rebel or a Total Lunatic Behind the Wheel — 9 Comments

  1. Here at Simon Fraser University speed bumps are standard height, but around 4 feet wide. This creates a really good launch ramp if you hit it at speed. There is one such speed bump installed part-way through a fairly sharp curve just outside my workplace. A couple of years ago one of our undergrads demonstrated the take-off you could get from one of these. Managed to cover 65 feet in the air and followed it with three complete roll-overs. Unfortunately, he didn’t live to brag about it.

  2. @Rita: I haven’t gotten a traffic ticket in ages. (And that was a speed trap deal.)

    Damage is a relative term. The plastic panel under the engine that’s there to keep random road junk (and small animals I run over) from flying up into the engine tends to get “worn out.”
