Asphalt Speed Bumps and Humps FAQs

Where would I need speed bumps installed on my property? 

Speed bump and speed hump installation depend on areas where traffic safety is an issue. This can be determined by a traffic engineer professional who can analyze where speed bumps and humps will be most useful to deter speeding or other traffic issues. 

What is the difference between a speed bump and a speed hump?

A speed bump is commonly used on private roadways and parking lots. The height and length are dependent on the needs of the property. Speed humps, however, are installed on local residential streets. Speed Humps are generally a consistent size wherever they are installed.  

Why would you install a speed hump instead of a speed bump? What are the benefits? 

A speed hump is typically installed instead of a speed bump because it is longer and less steep, which creates a more gradual incline for vehicles to drive over. This can reduce the amount of noise and vibration caused by vehicles driving over the hump, as well as reduce the chances of damage to vehicles.

How high and wide should an asphalt speed bump be?

The recommended height for an asphalt speed bump is 2-4 inches, and the recommended width is 3-6 feet.

How far apart should asphalt speed bumps be spaced?

The recommended spacing for asphalt speed bumps is typically between 20-30 feet.

Are there any regulations or guidelines for installing asphalt speed bumps or humps on a road?

There are regulations and guidelines for installing speed bumps and humps on a road or in a parking lot. These typically include requirements for the size, shape, and spacing of the bumps, as well as requirements for signage and lighting. We can help review our local government and transportation department guidelines in South Florida.

Does Southern Asphalt Engineering fix, maintain and repaint speed bumps and speed humps?
