Look For “Speed Humps” To Spring Up Around Buffalo Soon
They're meant to slow traffic down in residential areas and they're going to start showing up around Buffalo. It's called a "Speed Hump" and the new initiative will be hitting streets soon.
Speed hump? What the heck is that? I've heard of a speed bump...but what's a speed HUMP?
According to Buffalo Rising, the placement of the bump or hump, and the speed to which you'd like to slow traffic down to will determine if it's a bump or a hump.
(Speed Humps are) designed to reduce car speeds to 5-10 MPH, where speed bumps, meant for parking lots and driveways, are designed to reduce car speeds to 2-5 MPH.
It's simply a pilot program for now, but be on the lookout for more these in residential neighborhoods if it seems to work well.
