Learn how speed humps can be incredibly useful.
1. Reduce risk of accidents.
Speed is the biggest factor in any sort of road or traffic accident – relating directly to injury severity. Unfortunately, we’ve become so accustomed to driving at speed, so we can forget just how dangerous accidents involving motorists can be. Speed humps are an excellent traffic controlling tool used for slowing down vehicles in areas with a high volume of pedestrians. This not only decreases vehicular speed, but driver awareness increases as a result too
2. Consideration of pedestrians.
In traffic safety, pedestrians are the most vulnerable to accidents. No matter how they crossroads, speeding vehicles put their lives at risk. Fortunately, by forcing motorists to slow down, pedestrians get more time to spot vehicles and make a safe crossing. Where children are required to frequently cross roads and streets, this is of particular importance.
3. Volume controlling motor traffic.
Speed humps can be used to control motorist volume in a desired area. Particularly useful for streets or roads that act as a through route (traffic paths avoiding city, town, or built-up areas). The restrictions provided by the presence of speed humps create slower vehicle speeds, resulting in noise reduction. Traffic volume controls can be created using a combination of traffic and safety products.
4. Regulating traffic.
Most people on the road prefer a quicker journey, sub-consciously assessing routes for the fastest one. Strategically placed speed humps can direct traffic from one street to another. They force drivers to slow down and are usually placed in busy pedestrian areas too. Naturally road users will avoid these routes in preference of faster ones.
5. Self-enforcing road rules.
Whatever kind of traffic management you’re looking to deploy at your business, speed humps are a visual enforcer for vehicles. They clearly communicate an area is designated as ‘safe’, lowering speed, raising diver alertness and any other benefits you’re trying to achieve. We stock speed humps online for all types of business and road requirements.
