What's your views on those speed bumps ?

You know the ones that are just about every side street !


I have heard that councils are being put under
more and more pressure not to put them in
from goverment, and even being asked to remove them ??

What do you think ?
Do you Love them ?
Do you Hate them ?

Do they do what there supposed to do ?
Do they slow traffic ?
Are they costing you Repairs to your car?

Post your comment below smile

theyre rubbish. soon as youve scraped over them youre only gonna put yer foot down anyway.
theyre also a safety hazard. they make it harder for ambulances and fire engines to get to places...

There bloody anoying, cant get over the ones around me nans estate at anything more than 5 mph with out scraping the bumper, luckily it's ****ed anyway at the moment though anyway so I can just fly over them (so long as theres no one there cos the sound is rather bad) laugh . Once I got the car sorted though it's gonna be a pain in the arse. Dont mind them square things though, so long as u line em up right can fly over them at what ever speed you like and dont even feel em.

i agree with ben on that one how are emergency services supossed to get to incidents as fast as possible if speed bumps are there costing precious seconds! the do work though because you either have to slow down or run the risk of wrecking your car! im with Paz they do need to be lower!

I think that speed bumps should only be placed in proven bad areas. These are areas such as schools etc.., where kids play. Also areas on side roads where there is a speeding problem. But i also think that the speed bumps should be set to a size and a hieght, where a car doing the right speed, does not get damaged and if it does then the bump needs removing altogether...

i work a lot in liver pool and the speed bumps around some areas are ridiculas, its like crossin a ceneral reservation, i scrap even in my van.

i agree they should be placed around school areas and proven danger spots but some of them are a waste of time and you can speed over them at any speed.

they need to be realistic.

Anyone seen the MOUNTAINS at the colleage area Hamilton Square area, down by the TAX office...

In the carparks behind the new building there massive, you would struggle on a motorcross...
seriously they have to be the most aggressive bumps ive seen and there only in a car park area..

Jimbo there real off roaders matey, you would love it...
No chance what's so ever of a body kit getting over them...

But I agree they have to be in sutable hazard area's...

I have them in my street and cars speed up to them brake heavy, and speed again...
Most divers go faster in between the bumps than
they would if they wernt there...

I think they are a good idea but I don't think they work.

People just drive as fast over them and most of them you can get your wheels either side of it anyway.

Some of them are a ridiculas size! & Scrape my bumper!!!! (But that's my fault he he he)

a survey was carried out on this, and it was found that speed bumps only need to be 5cm high to be effective, were as currently they are built anywhere between 10-20cm high.

If they damage your car I'm pretty sure you can claim the money back off the council.
