Quote Of The Week: Speed Bumps


The following conversation took place during a drive back from London, after passing through a street with a great many speed bumps (something that England is famous for):

My mother
(From the back seat)
“Do you have speed bumps in Holland?”

My Dutch Wife
(From the passenger seat)
“Yes. Since we don’t have hills we need speed bumps, otherwise the country really would be completely flat.”

  4. So, would any form of elevation (if they exist) in the Dutch landscape be called “grassy speed bumps?” Heuvel = Grassy speed bump.
