Surprise speedbump video

It's the first time I've seen any UAE-related story hit the front page of Digg. It's about this video on YouTube purportedly showing a new speedbump installed in Dubai and cars flying over it because it's a complete surprise to them that it was installed.

It's true, it's been around for a long time - that's a speed bump on Jumeirah Beach Road when they were 'beautifying' it. There's a photo somewhere too of the wreck of the Lamborghini after it hit the bump at speed.

Those Jumeirah bumps ARE annoying.

...and very hard to spot at night - I've scraped the underside of my car on several occasions!

Will the TRA pay for all that damage?

they have flashing LEDs on these now....even though they dont serve their purpose very well.

and having a speed bump with a new funky(retarded)traffic light makes no sense to me

That was pretty funny, although if you see the car afterwards, not so much...that Gallardo is toast, folks.

Mood lighting belongs in wine bars, not the streets. I travel really slow on JBR now cos I can't remember all the bumps and nearly been launched into the heavens like Lambo man a few times.

This is old news.. This video is a few months old and I believe it was posted under a different pretext. I think this is a bunch of Emirati lads having a laugh and I believe they are driving these cars that speed. If you notice you'll see the cars repeat etc..

Also the speeds they are doing are crazy speeds.. seems it's a bit staged to me...

anon if you think Also the speeds they are doing are crazy speeds.. seems it's a bit staged to me... you haven't driven on Beach Road. It's been well-known for many years as a racetrack.

Sitting at Chalet restaurant watching the lunatics scream past has for a long time been spectator sport.

Seen this video before. These basturds actualy removed the temporary speed bump sign to have a laugh and started filming.
