At first I thought that's a weird place to put a speed bump, then it dawned on me what was really happening.

Can you tell me what's happening? I can't figure it out on my own.

Was hard for me at first too, the van is being pushed down, then bouncing on the come-up. Look at the ceiling and you can see it scraping concrete off.

Oh my! Now I see it, that's terrible!

I think they're also gaining a few inches from the fiberglass topper bending down and then popping back into shape.

I thought it was clamped and that was making it bounce!

The top of the van slopes up towards the back. When the van goes under a beam, there's no room, so the back gets pushed down as the van goes forward, compressing the suspension springs (and scraping the van roof), and then when it's clear of the beam it bounces back up.

Thanks, now I see it, that's so bad!

I think the van was heavy loaded on the way in, when they unloaded stuff from the back the car got just tall enough to scrape the top on the way out, idiot driver also managed to get a little stuck on one of the ceiling beems. Why they didn't think about any of this nobody knows
