Why Are Speed Bumps Required in The UK

 

Speed bumps, also known as speed humps, are an important traffic calming measure used to reduce vehicle speeds in certain areas. While they may be a source of annoyance for some drivers, they serve an important role in keeping our roads safe and reducing the risk of accidents.

 

In the UK, speed bumps are typically found in residential areas, near schools, and in other locations where there is a need to control vehicle speeds. This is because these areas are often frequented by pedestrians, including children and the elderly, who are particularly vulnerable to being injured by speeding vehicles. By reducing speeds, speed bumps help to create a safer environment for everyone who uses the road.

But speed bumps are not just about safety. They can also help to reduce noise and air pollution. When vehicles are traveling at high speeds, they tend to make more noise and emit more pollutants into the air. By slowing down traffic, speed bumps can help to make our streets more peaceful and our air cleaner.

 

Speed bumps are typically made PVC material and are installed across the width of the road. They are typically between 50mm and 75mm tall and have a gradual incline and decline on either side to allow vehicles to traverse them without damaging their suspension. Most speed bumps also have a textured surface to help improve traction, especially in wet conditions.

Overall, while speed bumps may be inconvenient for some drivers, they serve an important role in keeping our roads safe and reducing the negative impacts of traffic. By slowing down vehicles, speed bumps help to create safer, more pleasant environments for everyone who uses the road.
