Thanks for your comments.

On Shotwell, coming down the hill, and on Southlands drive, Speed Bumps could do a great job of controlling the speed of cars.

But speed bumps also can imped the ability of firetrucks to get into our subdivision. They have to basically stop and roll over them.

And what happens to kids? on bikes and skateboards?

Ultimately, controlling speed is in all of our interest. Nobody wants injured kids, or accidents.

I think three, maybe four humps on that hill would help slow people down... or maybe just corrigated rumble strips. Those would SHAKE your car, but not impact emergency vehicles...

However - if we add these, we need to remove stop signs. Stop signs are being ignored or "rolled" - I do it, and I'm sure most people do... In the 10 years I've been here, I've spent hundreds per year on brakes for my cars...

Speed humps control SPEED without making you stop un-necessarily.
