      What I don't like is that if they are installed on say, a 25mph street, you have to slow down to 5-10mph to get over it. Why not make the speed bump a hump so you can go over it at the speed limit?

      I think that one in the OP is OK. just fill in that pothole and paint the damn thing.

      edit

      I hope those scrapes are from cars ripping through at 30mph.
      This is why there are different types of calming devices for different speeds but some cities do not care. We have a lot of speed tables around here that see to do a decent job.

      Yeah, in Mexico at least most of them are marked with warning signs like "Topes - 100m" so you can slow down before you catch air.

      At my college they put in a big speed hump one weekend and on Monday people were getting airborne on it. It is the type you can drive over at 10-15 MPH without getting the suspension too unsettled but if you drive over it at 30+ MPH you will have a fun time. We went down and watched for awhile and it was pretty funny.

      That looks like a smooth one compared to the ones that have a high peak.

      Just get a vehicle with lots of suspension travel. An old VW bus or a Ford Expedition would allow you to take that at 35 mph easily. With a Ford Raptor you would hardly take note of it being there. Most modern Subarus would hardly be inconvenienced by a little bump like that.

      Buy a low-to-the-ground sports car and complain about bumps...first world problems.

      It's people without severely lowered suspensions (99+%) who STOP TWICE for speed bumps that drive me nuts. It feels perfectly fine if you drive over it at normal parking lot speeds, go live in a bubble you ****ing *****.... (I should probably just shut up, especially just having admitted to doing something stupid in another thread)

      There are ones entering a parking lot for a shopping center here, that are humps instead of bumps. They are so tall, and gradual, that I would nearly high center my stock e91. Any guy with even a factory low car would scrape like mad.

      The PO-lease tried this at Waterfest. Five minutes later prybars were out tearing them out of the tarmac.

      I think the problem actually seems to be that the speedbump is not well-marked. So people go over it at higher speeds, and that's why it's all scraped up. If it was properly marked either in yellow, or with a sign, it wouldn't be a problem.

      Yeah that speed bump is nothing, but it not being painted or at least a sign to indicate its presence is crap.

      -Unpainted/unmarked.
      -Taller than it looks- so you veer towards the lower part that been lowered by vehicles bottoming out and scrapping on it.
      -Because there is a huge pothole hidden behind it.

      Haven't seen a pic yet in this thread of a parking lot speed bump that's worse as is.

      It was never actually stated as to how or the circumstances of people dying from speed bumps. Granted the context of the conversation would make one believe that one has to ride in the back of an ambulance to suffer death. So given about 10 million ambulance rides a year. Got it off the internet after a quick search. The 6 percent death rate would be high even for England.

      So given evidence it is only logical the pensioners in Hondas can not control them when the VTEC kicks in, and go off the road to visit St Peter.
      Focus ST which stands for Suspension Technologies.

      That means it does things magically. In such ways I can not describe, but it is better in every way.

      They bolted some speed bumps in my building's parking lot, the bolts didn't last long though. The speed bumps just became loose after that and were easy to drive around.
