In order for driver to better control speed of vehicle and ensure safety of pedestrians, we can see presence of speed bumps in residential areas, around schools, in hospitals and in most crowded places. The speed bump is black and yellow, with a slight slope for safety. Many drivers do not agree with existence of speed bumps, because passage of speed bumps for a long time will have a big impact on vehicle.
So let me tell car owners today what are wrong ways to drive a speed bump? What harm will it bring?
1. Pass speed bump at high speed
As name suggests, meaning of speed bumps is to get driver's attention and slow down passing vehicle. If a driver drives by at high speed for a long time because he doesn't care, it will have a greater impact on vehicle. At same time, if vehicle passes through gearbox at high speed, vehicle is easy to prop up, especially for some models with a low chassis, danger is even greater. Because if car speed is too high, it will cause suspension to bounce down and "knock" chassis after compression, so you have to slow down when passing a speed bump.
2. Pass speed bump at an angle
When vehicle passes deceleration tape vertically, vehicle has a relatively large sensation of bumps and bumps. When passing obliquely, it feels like car is not bouncing as much, and buildup is more, so in eyes of most people, most cars are more comfortable driving diagonally than vertically. However, judging by structure of body and suspension, movement of car on speed bump occurs due to pressure movement of wheels (including suspension) between ground and car body. When a speed bump passes vertically, left and right wheels are compressed at same time, and force from ground is divided by springs and dampers of two wheels in half, and is not affected by independent or independent suspension. And crossing speed bump obliquely will actually cause more damage to springs, shock absorbers and the entire body (frame).
Why it is more convenient to drive a speed bump at an angle, because in addition to suspension and tires, body also absorbs a certain amount of vibration, due to which vibration transmitted to human body slows down. You should be aware that riding this way for a long time will cause "hidden damage" to frame, especially for low quality models.
3. Single-sided tires go around and pass speed bumps
To reduce feeling of bumpiness, make passengers on one side of car more comfortable. Many car owners prefer to have one side of tire bypass gap to pass a speed bump when passing a speed bump, and only use other side of tire for overtaking. In fact, this approach is not recommended. If you often go around a recumbent on one side, then misalignment of front wheel on one side will be significantly greater than on other side, that is, phenomenon that one side is higher and other is lower can be seen with naked eye. This practice will affect tires, suspension and steering gear, if it goes on like this, car will be damaged. If this causes wheels to deviate, alignment should be done in time to reduce tire wear and improve driving safety
Tips: Speed bumps are installed to ensure safety of pedestrians. If owner passes by quickly, not only will it be difficult to ensure safety of pedestrians, but it will also be harmful to vehicle itself.
