Speed Ramp Kits: All you need to know
Posted by Street Solutions on
In most car accidents, speed is the main factor increasing both danger and injury. As drivers travel quicker, they have less time to react to road circumstances and any subsequent crash creates more damage to the surrounding drivers.
Organisations can choose from a variety of traffic calming instruments to promote safe driving to combat the speed issue. One of the methods used to slow down vehicles and boost driver consciousness is speed limits, speed bumps, speed humps, roundabouts and warnings. While Speed Bumps also promote safe driving, enforcement on a bigger scale can be hard and costly.
What are Speed Ramps?
Speed ramps or speed bumps are extremely efficient equipment for calming traffic, perfect for business and residential use. The speed ramps are sometimes referred to as 'Sleeping Policemen'
The Speed Bumps will typically come in 2 depth sizes, which allow the varied speeds that vehicles can travel over them at, these will either 50mm or 75mm. Speed humps are designed to slow down vehicles to between to speed of 5 mph and 15 mph.
