Speed cushions and Speed Humps

 

red and white speed cushions in use on roads in Europe

 

Speed humps and Speed Cushions are both traffic calming measures that are installed on the road surface to encourage drivers to reduce their speed.

Speed humps are narrow vertical deflections that cover the entire width of the road from curb to curb.

Speed Cushions are similar, except that they are larger and do not reach all the way to the curb, providing a gap so that cyclists, emergency vehicles and buses are able to pass over or around them without slowing down.

 Speed Humps and Speed Cushions to slow down drivers in residential areas to reduce vehicle speeds

 

Where are they installed?

Both are typically used in areas where excessive speed can endanger pedestrians, for example in residential areas and outside of schools. However, since speed cushions are more expensive to install, they are normally restricted to routes that require cycle or emergency vehicle access, for example in cycle lanes and outside hospitals. 

It is important to follow local authority guidelines when installing traffic calming measures and to ensure they do not prevent access for the disabled.  

 

Can I park on them?

Vehicles are usually permitted to park on speed humps and speed cushions, unless there are specific waiting or loading restrictions, or the vehicle is causing an obstruction.

Advantages of speed cushions:

While both measures are effective in slowing down traffic, speed cushions provide a few obvious advantages over traditional speed humps that justify the extra cost.
