Speed Bumps

A common cause of traffic accidents is speed. Speed ramps and bumps can help to prevent individuals driving too fast through areas where it is desirable to keep speed below a certain level. They are especially helpful in car parks where there is a greater risk of traffic collisions with pedestrians, property and other vehicles.

Speed bumps can be supplied as single units or in modular form to fit all locations. Look for bumps that are heighted to correspond with speed restrictions in and around your premises to ensure everyone who uses your car park is safe. For more information on speed bumps and how to use them, read our traffic calming buying guide.

Road Humps Buying Guide

Reducing the speed of vehicles has been proven to protect people from injury. Research into the effects of slowing down traffic state that for every 1 mph speed is reduced, the chance of an injury accident occurring is lessened by around 5%. Rolling this out, reducing speeds by just 9 mph has been shown to eliminate between 60-70% of injury accidents. Installing speed bumps is a cost-effective way of ensuring speed is minimised around your premises.

Speed Ramp Choices

There are several considerations to take into account when choosing traffic calming equipment for your worksite, including:

  • Visibility - Speed humps only work if they can be seen. Choose a high-visibility option that can be seen at night or in poor weather conditions.

  • Height - Bumps of differing heights will affect traffic differently. Think about the size of vehicle that will be driving around your premises and how much you want to slow them by.

  • Width - Do you want to slow all traffic? Using narrower or modular bumps that can be tailored to a specific width will allow emergency services and other large vehicles to pass over them unhindered.

  • Ensure speed bumps are installed using dedicated fixing bolts. If fitted incorrectly, speed ramps can damage a vehicle and be uncomfortable for drivers and passengers. If your road surface is damaged in anyway, be sure to make repairs using a strong, long lasting solution.

    Road Bumps and Other Traffic Calming Solutions

    Speed bumps can be used successfully on their own, but also work well as part of a larger traffic flow solution. Think about the layout of your car park and decide if there are any other measures that can be put in place to make it safer.

    Dictating the direction that traffic moves in will minimise confusion in your outside spaces and prevent collisions with people, property and other vehicles. Use line marking equipment to paint directional information directly onto road surfaces - exactly where drivers will be looking. This can also be used to create virtual chicanes or other turns that will prevent cars from speeding up on long, straight stretches of road.

    By allowing vehicles to pass over them in one direction only, traffic spikes can be installed to prevent cars and lorries from entering prohibited areas or going against the flow of traffic in one way systems. Look for options where spikes can be removed for maximum flexibility and signs must always be placed nearby warning drivers of their presence.

    Signs which offer information on speed restrictions and/or wayfinding are an absolute necessity in car parks, loading bays and outside spaces. We recommend using reflective options for most outdoor applications, however standard signs can be placed in areas where nighttime use will be minimal. Clear, concise signage placed on a post advising drivers of speed restrictions wherever they change will go a long way to preventing accidents.
