Most drivers around here race up to speed bumps & then over brake to compensate. (this is when the skilled hypermiler catches back up with them & gets pissed cause it screws up their better thought out strategy) I still don't understand the mentality of most drivers who just drive soley with emotion & zero common sense.
I try use just enough momentum to keep me going from one bump to the next.
I usually just idle through stop signs.

My car is an automatic so I know that EOC is not good for it.

The name "Camry" is an Anglicized phonetic transcription of the Japanese word kanmuri meaning "crown".
