    This woman was driving a 4WD vehicle, and obviously expected to just cruise right over the speed bumps at speed, so she COULD have zipped down the hill faster than me (I don't do 40MPH down that, or any other, hill). Except she ended up behind an old sedan that had no intention of speeding over speed bumps, and a bus in front of him. So I still was right behind her the whole way down.

    Pass these drivers at the speedbumps on the downhill. Bonus points if you yell at them that they should stay off the roads if they can't keep up with the speed limit.

    This is easy as well since bikes (at least every bike I've ridden) can go over speed bumps faster than any car I've driven.
