Car Sim Shows What Happens If You Run Over Multiple Bumps At High Speed

It’s a well-known fact that just about all drivers hate speed bumps, especially those that can rock your car so violently, you’d think you just drove over a slab of steel-reinforced concrete.

Still, if you’ve ever wondered how your car would react to driving over multiple speed bumps at speeds in excess of 150 mph (241 km/h), a really short answer would be: not well at all.

Thanks to BeamNG.drive, a driving simulator with unique soft-body physics, and the DestructionNation YouTube channel, we can bare witness to the massacre that occurs when a vehicle attempts to drive over 100+ speed bumps while showing no signs of slowing down.

To be fair, the results would vary depending on the type of car you’d be driving. So even if the gaming physics aren’t 100% realistic, we reckon something with a higher ground clearance and softer suspension would indeed have a better chance of not getting completely destroyed.

For example, a heavy duty pickup truck and a large van actually managed to clear all the speed bumps in BeamNG.drive, whereas pretty much everything else either struggled or failed miserably.

  • SPEED BUMPS HAVE BEEN SHOWING UP IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD LATELY. THEY DON’T FILL POTHOLES HERE THEY USE THE ASPHALT TO BUILD THE MOUNDS INSTEAD. THAT BEING SAID THIS IS A REALLY STUPID VIDEO AS I HAVE NEVER WONDERED WHAT GOING OVER THEM AT 150 MPH WOULD BE LIKE. LET’S SEE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO A CAR GOING OVER A SPEED BUMP AT A REALISTIC SPEED.

    which road has so many speed bumps at such close range?

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    Yep…that’ll happen in a video game

  • Harry_Wild

    Good reason to remove them, it a hazard to drivers who want to test their sports cars and SUVs. Good for service centers specializing in wheel alignments and suspension repairs.

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    Beam NG is more violent than GTA V

  • Vassilis

    That was pretty cool!

    I love how the Viper practically exploded when it met he speed bumps
