If you want to put speed bumps on your street, you should consider collaborating with your neighbors to create a petition and official application.
The petition should include the neighborhood’s name and address, and describe the reasons why the neighborhood wants traffic calming measures. It should also specify the precise location of speed bumps.
When submitting the petition, you should send it along with an official letterhead and contact information for your city. If you’re able to get the support of the local council person, you may also get a letter from them to help justify the reason for the speed bumps in the community.
Speed bumps aren’t suitable for all streets
It’s important to note that speed bumps aren’t suitable for all streets, and the city has strict requirements about the locations where they can be installed.
While some cities and towns have a policy against installing speed bumps on major arterial streets, the city has decided that they’re the perfect solution for local streets.
In New York City, you can even request the Department of Transportation to put speed bumps on your street, if you can prove that your street has low traffic.
After all, it costs nothing to install them and they’re extremely effective.
When applying for a speed bump in New York City, you should know that it’s only possible on local streets. While they are narrower than a speed bump, they are still effective in reducing traffic speed.
Once you have paid the application fee, you can have a speed bump installed on your street. Depending on your local city regulations, the bumps will be installed within a few months, so make sure you’re patient and do not expect the bumps to be installed overnight.
