One thing you’ll find on a lot of Indian roads is a speed bump or two – but they pose more of an obstacle to low supercar owners than others.

Check out this video of supercars struggling to get over a speed bump at an unknown location in Karnataka, India.

The Southern Indian state has a healthy population of supercars.

The footage was shared on YouTube by Spotter India – Tanis.

The speed bumps are definitely doing their job of reducing traffic speed – but at what cost?

The fifteen seconds of footage first shows a Porsche 911 approach surrounded by motorbikes.

However, while the bikes simply reduce their speed and pass over it without incident, the massive speed bump stops the supercar in its tracks.

The Porsche driver comes to a complete stop before approaching the speed breaker.

Then they steer to the side so that the car’s tire comes in contact with the speed bump first to avoid damaging their bumper.

As the person behind the camera lies in wait, a Lamborghini Gallardo approaches the same speed bump.

With a nose close to the road, again the car turns to the side almost colliding with an oncoming car in the process.

They then drive over the speed bump sideways.

It seems there’s a knack to this that local drivers need to become accustomed to quickly.

While this concept two-wheel electric car is low to the road, the smart design wheels react relative to the car’s body.

This allows it to shift the center of gravity when needed and keep the car level and as stable as a four-wheel car – it can even take on speed bumps with ease.

Meanwhile, this Dodge Viper was turned into an off-roader to give it more muscle – and it can handle bumpy terrain with ease.

Back in 2022, Indian traffic police identified 427 “unscientific” and “steep” speed bumps in the capital of Karnataka, Bengaluru.

Per Times Of India, they demanded that they be replaced.

And it seems it’s a global issue as an American man woke up to find his angry neighbor had built DIY speed bumps outside his house in the middle of the night.

The neighbor was said to be annoyed about cars speeding past his car at night.
