Then again, running over a 4x4 piece of wood or a tree branch or even the right size rock would do the trick.

The idea is achieving the effect and protecting your tires and undercarriage however. Sandbag = pretty harmless and even one will give the right effect with the correct sound fx.

Got a sandbag and am ready to use it for the shoot next weekend, thank you everyone for all the help.

Ensure you grab yourself a reaction shot just in case it doesn't work out.

Another idea...shoot it green screen, and move the background image in post. You can shoot your background plate without any movement, and "bounce" it in your editor.

I've used a speed bump.


Obviously not exactly what you're going for, but selling from the actress, camerawork, and sound are key.

I don't know what you're capabilities are in terms of mounting a camera, but you can still do the speed bump version but with a close up with the actress so as to not show the surrounding area. The scene above are two different locations. Same area, but not the same street.
