This What Happens when Two speed bumps placed too close to each other

Whether you call them speed bumps, we can all agree that they can be annoying, but in many areas they are needed to slow down traffic and minimize speeding. However, place two in tandem? It sounds weird.

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 upon, dubbed Speed Bump Olympics, could give this famous bridge a run for its money.

For about a month, the owner of the channel has been sharing videos of vehicles driving at full speed on the two speed bumps located just in front of his house. We don’t know why anyone thought it would be a good idea to place two big speed bumps so close to each other. However, this makes some interesting images. 

Many drivers approach the first speed bump with far too much speed, probably thinking they can get through it without slowing down. They are then confronted with the second retarder that bounces many of them in the air. All sorts of drivers and vehicles can be seen getting caught by speed bumps, including a police officer driving a Ford Explorer who you think would be aware of double speed bumps if they frequently patrol the area.

The cars featured in the clip suffer all kinds of shocks and scrapes. Some scratch their undercoats along the speed bumps, sending sparks flying through the air. Others bounce up and down, damaging their front and rear bumpers. Remarkably, the individual behind the YouTube channel says he lived in front of the speed bumps for 11 years and they never saw an accident caused by them.
