Speed Bumps on N. California Near Jordan Ineffective
Original post made by Concerned School Neighbor, Leland Manor/Garland Drive, on Nov 11, 2012
I have noticed that the "speed bumps" adjacent to Jordan on N. California are not effective because they allow a car to travel comfortably over them at up to 35 mph without much discomfort on the part of the vehicle's passengers. Is not the purpose of such bumps to keep cars at the posted speed? I noticed that bumps on Greer Rd. between N. California and Oregon are very effective (and they are not even adjacent to a school!). If I am exceeding 25mph my car gets an extremely unpleasant jolt when I travel on Greer. What is the deal with speed bumps around schools and is it not the responsibility of whoever installs them to make sure that they effectively get the desired effect? Has anyone else noticed that these bumps seem like "speed bumps light"? I am not sure where the responsibility lies in making sure that those bumps have the desired effect of slowing people down. Thanks for any others that weighing in on this as I have been wondering about it for a long time and hope that something can be done to fix this sad situation. If any other concerned citizens would know who to file a complaint with, please advise. What a waste of speed bump money!
