The “Water Cooler” is a feature on Claycord.com where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it.

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday in the noon hour.

What do you think is the most effective way to control speeding in residential neighborhoods? Speed Bumps, Roundabouts, Stop Signs or Dips in the Road?

When people driving electric scooters at work would
speed and cut blind corners had the perfect cure.
Had perfect cure, an old full sized CPR dummy.
Usually only took once to cure the problem.

Speed bumps, people here don’t know how to use roundabouts and the sign “Dip” feels like it is calling me names (sarcasm)

Chicanes are fun. Speed bumps not so much; that’s why they call them “traffic calming” as if that softens the bump somehow. It doesn’t soften the bump nor does it calm traffic.

Traffic control officers, do we even have any? When they repaved a nearby street where I live, they painted a portion of the curb red, and installed a “No Parking At Any Time” sign, and every day there are cars parked there. Stop signs are a waste because most people roll right through them, roundabouts can be confusing to some drivers, and kids will speed around them burning rubber. Speed bumps and road dips inconvenience everybody just to slow down a few, and add excessive wear and tear on your brakes. We need traffic control officers that will patrol neighborhoods and hand out tickets to the speeders, and meter maids to ticket illegal parking.

Probably stop signs or roundabouts… dips and speed bumps need to be designed for vehicles to be allowed to go the speed limit – say 25mph in residential areas. Almost all dip and speed bumps don’t allow you to go the speed limit.

A dip in the road. You have to slow down for a dip more than a speed bump, otherwise you’ll bottom out your front end. Especially if your car sits low.

Enforcement of traffic laws. There are none anymore, as most drivers ignore them, and the police are too busy chasing the massive hordes of criminals that are now allowed to run wild in our communities.

I prefer good ole Stop Signs. I despise speed bumps, as some are worse than others throughout the city neighborhoods and difficult to see even with the white paint, which fades. They differ in size, hard to see, etc. Personally they have caused some physical pain at times for me. I do my best to follow the speed limits. There are some poorly designed speed bumps in specific residential neighborhoods I’ve gone over. Know the areas, don’t have the Street names on top of my head at this moment.

Rounabouts area great, depending on the intregation of the network but are shied away from for a few reasons.

Recalibrate the speedometers to read 50mph when you are actually doing 25+/- 3.

Park Highlands Blvd (between Ygnacio and Alberta) needs people to stop using it as a speedway. Also, stop signs are not a suggestion

They wont spend the money on enforcement,they think they need to give it to the homeless and illegals.not ” migrants.”Doing it legal,youre a migrant.

Speed bumps are there to destroy your car and create revenue for the city thru repairs while you dont notice 10 years of suspension and electical damage done to your car in a one year period.
Do you think it’s good for the human body going over a spped bump 3000 times a year?30 a day is about 10,000 speed bumps per year,itcant be good for anyone.more doctors for mystery pains,more meds,more revenue.
Prove me wrong

Damage does not occur if drivers go SLOW over speed bumps… like you’re supposed to, right?

Btw, OE shock absorbers dont last much past 30K miles. Install new shocks/struts and be amazed how quiet your ride will be – especially over rough or less maintained pavement.

Thar is pure delusion,and the 30 k they last knocks down to 10 k with speed bumps,,,get it?
Probably not.

We need automatic speed cameras so if you speed you get a ticket in the mail. We should also reduce residential speed limits to 15 MPH
