dont forget ground clearance on a mini is only a few inches anyway... and i meant those crappy plastic/rubber ones u get in supermarket carparks.. u know the yellow and black ones that bolt down to the ground.. as soon as my front wheels come down the other side of it, i bash the crap outta the bottom of my manifold lol

we generally have the speed humps in some shopping parking areas and on the 'cut thru' routes that connect busy roads thru a residential area. They are a necessaary evil in such places to slow down the cars for better safety, especially to protect children.

in UK the local councils have some strange obsession with putting them everywhere they can get away with.. my favourite ones are in an industrial estate that are just the right size, and just the right space apart for every lorry (truck) to drive straight over without noticing
