My high school is notorious for its gigantic speed bumps. I mean, these things are colossal. The school buses roll over them at a comfy 2 mph and I still almost hit the ceiling with my head when we go over 'em. Granted I'm quite a tall fellow but you get my point.

Anyway, what I've decided to do for our school's senior prank (since the speedbumps are so infamous) is that we're going to add cement to the speedbumps so that they increase in size to the point where they are roughly twice as heinous as they are now.

My question is this.

Just how do they make the damn things?

Damn, not concrete? Do you think just adding concrete will work? I don't know how we could get it to set so that it's not block-shaped or just a big puddle. You must understand, I'm not familiar with the general consistency of concrete.

I'm not sure how to make them, but I do think this would be a funny prank. However, I would be worried about making them too high and having someone drive over them and destroy the underside of their car/front bumper if the car is too low. If you are caught you will probably have to pay quite a bit for damages, and also for the labor to remove the concrete/asphalt that you added to the speedbumps. Other than that, I'd say go for it.

Is asphalt commercially available? I don't want to use Quikcrete if you're supposed to use asphalt.

Yes you can get it. No mixing or anything. All you need is a truck and shovel.
Google cold asphalt, or cold patch.

Damn, i didn't even think about that possibility. Not only does our student body drive generally expensive vehicles, but I don't and we can't really afford to have to pay for someone else's car.

NEW IDEA: Get rid of the speedbumps. Anyone know how to do that?

EDIT: Without using an IED.

keep in mind this is for ONE speed bump only and will be pretty tough work

One speed bump really wouldn't appear that impressive/noticeable so i'd suggest a new course of action/ new prank

how bout instead of making the existing speed bumps bigger, you just add a whole bunch of em.. Equally funny any annoying, but with less potential for vehicle damage
#30
Just make up a rectangular frame that spans the length of the bump, make it the height you want it than make it wide enough, than as it drys put the curved angle on it that they have

EDIT: You'll need

-Nails
-Wood
-Hammer
-Bags of cement (depending on how big they are, and how high you want em)
-friends to help.

Hack away with a pickaxe if you want to get rid of it.

Just use concrete if that's what you can get! It's not supposed to be a professional job, in fact, the worse it is, the better!

Do this. Try and stagger them so that the average wheel base of a car will cause the front wheels to go over one speedbump as the rear wheels go over another.
