The funny thing about the speed humps on Stanley is that they're not nearly as effective as their siblings, speed bumps. Unlike a speed bump, you can go over one of these at 50 km/hr and it will rock your car back and forth, but it's not really a big deal (I keep seeing people speed over them when I cycle down Stanley in the morning, so out of curiosity, I tried this). A speed bump will basically destroy your car at 50 km/hr.

I think the speed hump elevation on Stanley is simply too small to make much difference. I saw a guy who must have been going 60 km/hr go over them without braking, and he went over both of them that way, so he clearly wasn't deterred. I still see people braking for them, but I have a feeling that won't last long.
