    Default Speed hump scraping

    How annoying is it when the black plastic lip trim gets scuffed on a speed hump Grrrr.... had to use a different route to work this morning due to an accident on usual route and had no choice but to go down this road that has loads of speed humps, unfortunately a couple of them are quite high ones, saw this high one and approached it with extreme caution and still on the upwards slope of the hump it scraped!! most annoyed Grrrrrrrr... ****** speed humps.
    Cheers Pete

    Don't worry about it, my main issue is pulling onto my drive, there is literally a 4mm gap, but a gap is a gap and its fine. Plus, I work in and around Blackburn which is the speed bump capital of the world and haven't clouted one yet, you have to take great care mind, but it clears ok.
