A man whose lowered Volkswagen sedan suffered damage driving over his hometown’s speed bumps wants the town to pay for its repair because he says, the bumps are a form of “discrimination. Christopher Fitzgibbon wants his small town to pay for around $3,400 worth of damages done by driving his lowered VW Passat over the speed bumps. “I feel discriminated against because I’m driving a modified car – it’s lowered, so it’s four inches off the road – and I’m being denied my right to drive on these roads,” he says. He says that having to avoid the speed bumps has meant he can’t drive through the town on his commute and that's costing him even more money. The city commission disagrees with the assertion that the speed bumps aren't legal and are discriminatory.
