Suggestions/Requests > SPEED HUMPS AND BUMPS UPDATE

Was told at a meeting that all that was needed were signatures on a petition to get speed bumps on our streets. THIS IS NOT TRUE. The city (Traffic Engineering) has to do an evaluation of how much traffic there is before that can happen.
QUOTE FROM THEIR WEBSITE: We have found that we have a speeding problem on virtually every street. For this reason, we must work first with those streets with the biggest problems. To qualify for speed humps we must find that a local residential street carries more than 500 vehicles per day going more than 5 mph over the speed limit.
THAT SAID:
Could be years before the city puts up more stop signs. It's up to us to control traffic. Suggesting a mini roundabout at the cross streets. not large ones, but large enough to make drives have to slow down to get around them?? Or close our streets off to "Through Traffic" using signs close to Central.
