    What if, gawd forbid, it lands on a bear?

    Will probably need to replace an axle.

    No debris, so it wasn’t a Bugatti…

    Hmmm, Harriet must be a Senator posturing for a Supreme Court vote before anyone knows the nominee.

    Several years ago I witnessed one of the other powers that a speed bump has. It has the power to balance a car. Someone tried to go over said speed bump driving their Cadillac, unfortunately they had replaced the tires that come with the car with those that are 13". Got half way over and the car just sat on top of the bump as there was no traction provided to et the car over it. A couple of the passengers had to get out and rock the car so it could then navigate safely over the bump.

    I lived in Virginia Beach area. They had channels for rain runoff on the side of the roads. At intersections they were like reverse speed bumps. One day I sped over one and went about 2’ in the air or more. When I landed the car stopped and wouldn’t go. The shifter had moved to neutral. I put it in drive and all was fine. I did enjoy the jump though.

    We have inverse speed bumps where I live. They’re called “potholes” and “frost cracks”.

    Our town likes to put 15 mph speed bumps every couple of blocks, use signs that say 20 mph and leave the legal speed limit signs at 30 mph. One of many ways our anti-private-vehicle City Council tries to encourage walking, biking, and our tax-subsidized bus system.

    If that road tar gets as hot, as I think it does, in summer, then they really will stick the landing !

    We used to live on small residential street with no speed bumps, but the parallel street one block north did have them. One resident of the other street would barrel down two blocks of our street at 50mph in the middle of the night, scream around the corners, then park in front of his house. I was very close to buying a few sacks of asphalt and putting in a bump on our street (right wheel only) just to see his car flip.

    Yeah, but still, some of these newer speed bumps in parking lots feel like they were designed to launch a Harrier off a flight deck.

    They should build a ceiling/roof above the bump.

    Then the sign could read: “Speed… bump a head.”

    It’s like watching Bronco on BattleBots. What goes up must come down, but when you can count Mississippi’s while waiting, they almost deserve the win on height alone.

    I have developed a kind of game I play with speed bumps; my wife doesn’t know I do this. At least she has never said anything. I pump the brakes a split second before I reach the speed bump, which causes the front end to dive downward a little then the suspension causes the front of the car to bounce upward just as the front wheels pass over the speed bump and the car just glides smoothly over the bump. It doesn’t always work but I get a little satisfaction when it does!

    I wonder if the artist who does “Speed Bump” now owes Wiley a product placement fee?

    only reason why they’d take off that way is if they’re driving way too fast… gotta stick the landing before it counts, though :-)

    I grew up in a town on the Mississippi River. It had the main levee and another that was at perpendicular angle to the main one where several streets would cross it to another part of the town. Now imagine a ten foot speed bump. Yep, we all called it jumping the levee. Not many cars or motorcycles would survive it.

    Great strip (I do watch gymnastics at the Olympics) and a fine set of comments (for the most part). [And yes, I’m behind about a month and getting caught up.]
