I was recently driving in a neighborhood that had this, the rarest style of speed bump:

Unlike most speed bumps, which span the width of the road, this one defeats the purpose a bit by leaving two tire-width swaths unencumbered by speedbump.

Thought exercise: When you approach this speed bump, do you position your car so at least one side threads the needle and avoids the bump? Or do you just drive to avoid the divots and make sure both wheels experience the speed bump?

If you illustrated the most basic creative problem solving and said you’d avoid the bump, you are probably a conservative.

(Shortly after this picture was taken, I watched a car make sure to drive over with both tires. I almost stopped them to ask them why. These are the kinds of questions that keep me up at night.)
