A speed bump in Mexico City did its job a bit too well this week.

A police officer learned first-hand the dangers of fast driving when he failed to slow down before this speed bump.

Several police officers are driving down the road on motorcycles with sirens blaring. One of the officers hits the speed bump, causing the back wheel of the bike to lift and propelling him forward at a terrifying speed.

The motorcycle flips over and appears to land on the driver who bounces off the pavement before landing flat on his stomach.

Thankfully for this officer, he's able to roll over and sit up as help rushes over.
