Speed Humps Solutions

Traffic safety is a major concern around playgrounds and schools, in parking lots and multi-use areas, as well as in close proximity to people and cars. Speed bumps are a great way to slow down traffic and keep pedestrians safe. They can be installed in a variety of locations, from residential areas to key routes.

Speed bumps are made from long-lasting materials such as rubber and steel, or can be installed in the form of one-way tyre spikes. They are also easy to install and can be used in any weather condition.

Speed bumps are used for 15-25 mph speed limits and are frequently seen on local roads and connector routes where traffic must flow freely, but excessive speed could endanger pedestrians.

What are Speed Humps?

Speed humps are similar to speed bumps, but they are longer and not as tall. They are typically used in residential areas to discourage speeding. Unlike speed bumps, which are meant to be crossed quickly, humps are designed to be driven over slowly.

This allows traffic to flow more smoothly while still discouraging drivers from speeding. Speed humps are usually made of rubber or steel, which makes them durable and affordable to install.

Where are Road Humps Installed?

Humps are usually installed near schools, on local streets, and in residential neighborhoods. In most cases, steel or rubber speed humps are installed along roads with a posted speed limit of 15 km/h or less.

That being said, heavy-duty humps can be installed in factories and terminals where the traffic volume is higher.

Their travel length is usually between 3 and 20 feet apart, and they are typically yellow or white to increase visibility.

Difference Between Steel and Rubber Speed Humps

Humps can be made of rubber or steel, but there are a few differences between the different models.

Rubber speed humps are installed in areas with low traffic volume. They are used for small to medium-sized cars and are ideal for residential areas or short-term installations. Also, rubber speed humps are a great option to reduce noise pollution.

Steel humps, on the other hand, are best for higher levels of traffic and larger vehicles. Generally, steel is preferred for installations in car parks, shopping centres, factories, or transport depots.

Speed Hump FAQs

What is the difference between speed bumps and speed humps?
Speed bumps and humps are both used to slow traffic in residential areas, but there are some important differences between the two. Speed bumps are typically higher and sharper than road humps, which makes them more effective at slowing down vehicles.

However, they can also be more uncomfortable for drivers, and they can damage low-profile vehicles if approached too quickly.

Speed humps, on the other hand, are lower and smoother, which makes them more comfortable for drivers. They are also less likely to damage vehicles, but they are not as effective at slowing traffic. Ultimately, the decision of whether to use speed bumps or humps depends on the specific needs of the area.

How Much do speed humps cost?
The cost of a speed hump varies on the material it’s made of, with rubber speed humps starting at $30, and heavy-duty steel humps up to $500. TPS’ offers humps to meet your specifications.

Are speed humps legal?
Road humps are legal, but must follow Australian WHS laws, including an angle to height ratio of 1:2, flat tops between 100mm to 150mm wide and between 25mm to 75mm high. All TPS humps are compliant with Australian law.

How far apart should speed humps be placed?
Humps should be placed no fewer than 10m apart, including inside car parks, with maximum spacing to control speed at 50m. Humps cannot be placed where they impede pedestrian or wheelchair traffic.

Are speed humps effective?
Humps have been proven to be effective through studies that showed a 39% reduction in accidents on roads that have them installed. Although, effectiveness can vary based on the quality of the speed hump itself, as cheaper materials can break quicker and may not sustain the weight of heavier vehicles such as trucks.
