Most of you probably know this, but I've only been driving for several years so I don't have huge experience. I was driving home from school, I needed to drop off a paper at friends house, she gave me the location and I found it no problems. On the way back, I was going along roads I didn't really know, it was dark, I was doing just 50km/hour and I hit a speed hump. Nothing bad happened, just a rude shock, there were no signs or anything, it was very hard to see. Why is this a important lesson? Well, if I was on a bike, I could have simply been hurled out of my seat. So the lesson is, on roads you don't know, concerntrate! I'll call the council tomorrow and get them to put up signs or make the speed hump actually visible (same same color as the road, sigh) Everyday im learning more and more things to be aware of on a bike, so if anyone else has got anything to share please do Cheers all, Rhys. PS - The speed hump was at Green Point Estate, Newcastle NSW.
