I yell at people who slow down over tracks, there'* such a worse rocking & bumping when you going slow. I usually speed up, less noticeable impact. Prolly worse for the car though, I don't know.
I go 55 over the tracks here. lol. I don't even feel them usually.

I think it'* more important to _not_ be on the brakes when you go over the tracks. When the tire bounces momentarily the brake can grab it, but then the pavement snatches it again and starts it turning again, etc. I can feel a smoother ride over the tracks if I'm not riding the brakes at the time.
