Benefits and regulations

Road safety benefits of speed humps

Speed humps have been used throughout the borough as a way to reduce accidents at identified hotspots.

Before their introduction we investigate very carefully the cause of accidents. In doing this we investigate all the factors which may affect driver behaviour.

After this we make a balanced judgement about why accidents are happening and how we can reduce them. We do not only look at introducing road humps. We may well consider alternative solutions. These could include mini roundabouts, surface treatments, improved signs and markings and chicanes for example.

Speed humps can sometimes lead to complaints about increased noise and vibration from traffic. They have however been proven to reduce traffic speed and have been installed in many locations to good effect.
