Rubber speed humps safely slow vehicle speed while maintaining traffic flow. This can be a crucial requirement on private community roads and commercial parking lots to reduce risk of traffic accidents.
Commercial Parking Lots
For any business responsible for a commercial parking lot, it is critical to understand State and Federal requirements. In our previous post Requirements on a Small Business Regarding Public Accommodations for Disabled Persons we discussed the American Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and how it includes reasonable accommodations and accessibility for employees, and the public, with disabilities.
In addition, reducing risk to pedestrians and vehicles in a commercial parking lot must also be high priority. The business should do its due-diligence to maintain public safety. Installing speed humps can greatly assist the reduction of traffic accident risk.
Private Roads in Gated Communities
A road may be owned and maintained by the Home Owners’ Association (HOA) within a gated community. Great responsibility comes along with owning a road. Along with maintenance and snow removal, it is also the responsibility of the HOA to control the speed of the motorists.
Many communities that manage private roads prefer to keep the speed limit at 20 miles per hour or less. A vehicle traveling at a speed greater than 15 or 20 MPH can prove to be a hazard to the residents of the community. A speed hump that is designed to reduce speed without being harmful to the moving vehicle is an excellent solution.
Rubber Speed Hump
A rubber speed hump is a modular device that safely slows vehicle speed while maintaining smooth traffic flow. Speed Humps provide a gradual hump, while still effectively reducing speed to 15 or 20 miles per hour.
At Traffic Safety Direct, we offer rubber speed humps constructed from 100% recycled tires. Our speed hump flexible design conforms to the contour of virtually any road surface. For more information, contact us at 888-260-3246
