Road humps reduce vehicle speeds on local roads. They can also reduce on-street parking, increase vehicle noise (through heavy braking and accelerating) and increase reaction times for emergency vehicles.
We have a set of guidelines for the investigation of public requests for road humps. If you are interested in having road humps installed on your street, please call 03 6238 2711 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
