The Ultimate Speed Bump

Posted on August 14, 2008

The local government in ShanXi province, China, decided they had enough of people speeding on their highways.

In an effort to stop speeders once and for all, they built a 100 foot long and 2 foot high winding speed block in the middle of the Jing Zhuang highway.

Unfortunately for the drivers, the speed bump is so narrow that a large number of cars end up scraping against the side even when driving careful. The speed bump has also taken the 2 lane highway down to a single lane, which has resulted in daily traffic jams.

So all you Chinese speeder better “Slon Doon.”

Isn't there a street in San Francisco that looks like that, except it is on a steep hill, and made out of flower beds. I drove that one in the 70's, and came out alive. http://www.dellakku.de/ And, not trucks were allowed on that stretch of road.

Hmm. I think we need a couple of those in my neighborhood. Unfortunately, if our government built them, they would probably cost more than the road itself.

Wow that is crazy. I do believe that it is a great safety measure though and can certainly bring down road accidients which is always a good thing! Great blog here, glad I found it! Babes | Gangster Fancy Dress | Guarantor Loans | Kettles and Toasters | Babes

And I thought the speed bumps in the states were bad, whoa! Apparently they don't have lawsuits there like we do here, because the first time someone here scraped up their car, the city would be paying for it. James <a rel="follow" href="http://mycloggedtoilet.com">Toilet Repair

I've been to taiwan, and I'm not wondering why motorists and cars always in a accident situation. They were so speedy, and event if the motorists got their own lane, some of them still occupied the main highway. Winding speed block should also be applied in taiwan. bowflex series 7

Wow that looks bad enough if traffic were just one-way, but the picture makes it look like traffic can run in both directions so you have to wait your turn. They might want to add brushes and some wet soapy foam to both sides of the walls so that they could charge cars as they go through ala a car wash? ;-)

I was wondering wouldn't it be cheaper to just add speed bumps? =p My bf say's speed bumps don't exist in China and neither does the right of way. Also considering the way people drive in SF and NY is extremely friendly compared to China. =p lol scares me to be a walking tourist in China.

It's China, we don't need tow trucks to move cars ;-) I'm not joking either... They could get a broken car out in no time. Push!

Imagine that a car broke down in the middle of that thing. It would be a mess trying to get a tow truck in there for help.

I was once worked in an area here in California that had a huge parking structure belonging to the state. People's sped through it daily so the state decided it would be nice to add some speed bumps to slow people down. Out of all the speed bumps they chose, the decided to go for the "lego-brick" look-alikes. After the 5 Lexus bumper having been torn off by the new bumps, they decided to remove them...

Cool way of traffic control! ^^ But if car's can't make it, what about stuff like buses or trucks or hearses. ^^
