Speed bumps are one of the ways countries resort to to enhance traffic safety and try to control the speed of cars on the roads, especially near schools, hospitals and residential areas.
Despite the critical importance of the bumps, they are one of the factors that cause cars to be damaged and sometimes accidents, sometimes due to the presence of bumps that do not conform to international specifications and standards, and there are drivers who pass these bumps incorrectly and at high speed.
Therefore, today we will show you the most prominent damages resulting from overtaking artificial bumps incorrectly, and how to avoid these damages.
First, the damages that can be caused to the car from hitting industrial bumps:
Car scissors are broken
Damage to the engine bases
Shock absorber breakage and damage
- Broken and damaged car exhaust
Loss of balance in the car, which may lead to swerving to the right or left
- car rollover
Steering wheel box damaged
Second, how to avoid the damages of industrial bumps:
The motorist must be careful while driving and always pay attention to the directions so that he can identify the places of the bumps, especially if he is driving on the road for the first time.
The speed must be reduced and the brakes should be used several meters before the bumps to reduce the speed of the car so as not to collide violently and cause damage to the bottom of the car.
– Do not apply the brakes when a sudden bump is detected, as this procedure often has counterproductive results, and all the driver has to do is stick to the steering wheel and make sure that the car does not swerve to the right or left until the collision.
– The best way to safely bypass the bump is to cross it transversely, by climbing on the bump in the front tires of the car and then turning the steering wheel in a semi-circular way until it climbs with the two rear tires as well and then walking forward.
