I bet most of the driver will only slowdown when they see a road hump ahead.. and this car is definitely hard to overcome such road hump. Especially Malaysia’s road humps must be tall enough for our drivers to really slow down otherwise most of those drivers will still speeding over the not-so-tall road humps.
