Hello.

I don't see many motorcyclists lying in the road around there so I guess most must see them... wink

I only tend to go over them with the left side of my car as I'm avoiding the toll grin

Maybe if you went a little bit more careful,you might have time to think of us lesser mortals who have to pay the toll.

Do you think that might draw attention to myself? A handbrake turn followed by really slowly reversing over the hump, then a J-turn?

I can only try I guess. What's the worst that can happen?

withthat

I reckon by 2020 it's going to cost £20 to go to work and back.

(See the pattern... by 2030, it'll be £30)

It's hardly the bikers' fault they don't have to pay. You could always get one too if you don't want to pay wink

Very strange - they only took away the old ones in September.
They are probably illegal, too. One misshap and it will cost them more in compensation and legislation than they are worth.
Last time I looked at the regs on speedbumps, one place that you could NOT put them was within so many metres of of a low hight object of less than so many metres (can't remember without looking it up).
I think the idea was to prevent high loads getting stuck under a bridge etc. that they should have been able to clear normally.
OK, it won't happen to a bike, but high and wide loads do go through the end booth lanes.
Watch this space - or lack of it...

The old ones were fine, very similar to the type used at the Queensway toll now. My issue is the severity of the thing itself, if someone is unused to the area and isn't aware of them they could be caught out...

For the moaners who complain about bikers not paying tolls, you try and stop, taking off your gloves, digging around in small zip pockets for change and then putting your gloves back on before moving off, there would be bikes backed right through to Liverpool!!!

It's more about practicalities than anything else.

For the person who started this thread, it just so happens that you should approach at the speed it recommends on the sign, and if you do that, then there's no problem. For people not used to the area, then i would certainly recommend getting in touch with the tunnels and mentioning as a biker, the humps are not visible enough, then they might paint them bright or put up a sign warning of the height, might only take an email but for the time it's taken to comment in here, you might actually get them to make a change.

I emailed about a problem with a road by ours once, and it was sorted!! Has to be worth a try. Good luck.
