Simply remove the asphalt spikes or lag bolts used to secure the bump to the surface. Then, safely store them for the winter.

Do speed bumps damage cars?
Speed bumps are designed to slow drivers down and protect pedestrians from aggressive drivers. In some cases, poorly designed speed bumps can cause damage to vehicles, regardless of the speed the driver is traveling. If a vehicle moves over a speed bump without slowing, it can cause minor damage to the vehicle’s frame.
How fast can you go over speed bumps?
Ideally, you shouldn’t go faster than 5 mph when traveling over a speed bump. Any faster and you’ll likely experience a substantial jolt that can harm your tires—not to mention several other parts of your vehicle such as its shocks, steering, exhaust system, and bumpers.
