Can I Get a Speed Hump on My Street?
In order for a speed hump to be installed, a local street must meet
the criteria listed in
Hump Resolution 2000-98.
While a speed hump can be useful
in slowing traffic on a local street, there are also effects that
some residents find undesirable.
and Cons of Speed Humps
Once the Traffic
Engineering Division receives a written request for a speed hump, a traffic
study is conducted. If the study shows that a street meets the minimum
requirements for traffic volume and speed violation, then the resident
requesting the speed hump would be sent a petition to be circulated among
the residents of the street.
A minimum of 95 percent of
the households in the block where the speed hump is requested must sign
the petition and 80 percent must be in favor of the hump for the street
to be eligible.
The installation costs associated
with speed humps are shared 50/50 with one-half paid by homeowners. The City pays the other half.
