THE USE OF HUMPS ON RESIDENTIAL STREETS

FAHRBAHNSCHWELLEN IN WOHNSTRASSEN?

The use of humps or "sleeping policemen" developed by the TRRL has been found most satisfactory under German traffic conditions. This device can result in a lowering of the speed levels and in the accident rate in residential areas. Its trial in some of the German states is to be welcomed, as road safety noticeably increased particularly for the weakest road users (pedestrians). /TRRL/
