Sometimes it seems like the people responsible for designing our roads don’t actually use them. Whether it’s low bridges that attack passing trucks, or unnervingly narrow traffic measures, there are a lot of obstacles that can catch you out while driving. One such terror that’s affecting drivers in California is a set of brutal double speed bumps.
Found in Fresno, California, these special speed humps comprise two 10-foot wide bumps that are each five inches high and separated by just 10 feet. For some strange reason, this setup seems to catch out any and all drivers that pass over the inconspicuous bumps.
In fact, it’s gotten so bad that residents local to the humps of doom, as I’m now calling them, have taken to filming some of the more embarrassing encounters drivers have with the humps. This, as you might expect, has spawned a YouTube channel and TikTok profile dedicated to the Fresno bumps.
We’ve been enthralled by this latest destructive traffic calming measure. So sit back, relax, and enjoy 13 drivers that probably wish they’d taken a different route to avoid these deadly double humps.
