everyday, twice a day..

I go over them at an angle, been driving lowered cars long enough to know that driveways, speed bumps, and even certain 'dips' or rain run off road gutters have to be taken at an angle.

The Camaro isn't a problem @ stock height, as it is rather short.. but better safe than sorry right..

Speed bumps should be outlawed.

The cops are trying to find a guy in this area who keeps "stealing" them. Was the feel good story of 2012.

I live in a gated community at the end of a private road. I have several to cross... just creep over them. No problem.

Don't worry. We won't rat you out. I mean, what were we talking about again?

Angles are your friend! A stock height SS is not much of a problem, but if you are lowered at all, I suggest taking speed bumps & driveway approaches at a 45* angle. Especially if you live in high runoff areas. You should see some of the dips around here!
