What about a Humps POI?

 

You know bumps in the road you drag (or hang up) the undercarriage of a motor-coach, bus, RV or double drop trailer. I drive a charter bus and wonder if there is any interest in this type of POI.

This could be just a place where two roads intersect that cause a problem, or RR crossings, etc.

I have just started doing this for areas I have had problems.

HUMP RR CROSSINGS

I'm with you along with alot of my trucker freinds all want hump rr crossings
i also come real close to hanging up in city streets to customers for pick up with there directions???

Maybe

Some kind soul, with nothing else to do with their life could get busy and create a POI file of every POTHOLE on every road in the U.S. Oh and maybe it can be kept up to date say every 30 minutes?

I see this as similar to the Restricted Clearance file - not very much use to most of us, but very valuable to those whom it might impact. Really not something to make fun of.

Perhaps there will be others like Panache and dangerousdan who will keep track of such problem areas and share them here. I suspect that the ability to slow down ahead of the problem area help them out.

Impossible task !

Where I live during the summer when the pavement gets very hot, the transit buses create awful ridges at their bus stops. I have often scraped the bottom of my car on them.

But this whole "Humps" thing would be an impossible task.

I could also add the need to create a "Tope" (Spanish for speed bumps), POI for Mexico.

But again an impossible task.

Other name

Speed bumps have other names in other countries. For example, in Jamaica, they are called "Sleeping Policeman."
