ARTIFICIAL ROAD HUMPS ON BUS ROUTES

VERKEERSDREMPELS IN BUSRAUTES

In recent years artificial road humps have been introduced in an increasing number of municipalities within built-up areas, with the purpose of decreasing the speed of traffic. In some cases these road humps are built on roads which are bus routes. The Rotterdam Bus Company has made a study of the reaction of the bus when riding over such a road hump and its influence on the passenger; the technical state of the vehicle (maintenance) and the exploitation costs. The main result of the study is that road humps in roads which are bus routes are not acceptable. /TRRL/
