From Iceland — Iceland Even Has The Best Speed Bumps In The World

Iceland Even Has The Best Speed Bumps In The World

Published November 9, 2017

Football, beautiful people, best per capita everything and financial crashes–Iceland is the best in the world. And now we even have the best speed bumps.

All over the world people have been raging about the 3D speed bump in the town Ísafjörður in the Westfjords and we can’t help but feel a sense of national pride about your interest in our speed bumps. Using optical illusions to stop traffic is a far better use of 3D technology than making the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake 3D (just stop it already).

Speed bump capital

But we were a bit surprised that so many people around the world were speed bump connoisseurs. But since that is the reality of things you’ll be happy to know that Iceland also has the town with the most speed bumps per square kilometre in the world–Kópavogur.

Driving down Digranesvegur in downtown Kópavogur is a must do thing in Iceland for everyone who loves speed bumps. Every 3 metres you get to slow down and enjoy a rollercoasteresque whooo experience.

We put them there not for traffic safety, but because Iceland is the best in the world–even when it comes to speed bumps.
