What Regulations And Standards For Speed Bumps?
Speed bumps help limit the speed of motorists in traffic areas with hard ground. We offer modular speed bumps for private roads and speed humps for public roads. The modular speed bump is installed only in private areas such as parking lots, condominiums, or shopping malls. Our speed bump models are suitable for 40 km/h, 30 km/h and 15 km/h zones. They adapt to all car parks.
The cable passage retarder is a trapezoidal retarder. It slows down motorists and protects cables on construction sites. The speed bump is a device for public roads. According to the highway code, it must be announced in advance by a road sign. This retarder does not occupy the entire width of the roadway.
Generally, speed bumps such as speed bumps Tucson for example can only be placed in built-up areas, on sections where the speed is limited to 30 km/h or in 30-zone zones, on road or motorway service or rest areas. They are prohibited within 200 meters of an entrance to a built-up area or a section limited to 70 km/h.
For modular speed bumps, their location outside zone 30 requires vertical signage, the A2b road sign 50 m from the speed bump, and the C27 road sign directly above the speed bump, in both directions of the lane. In a 30 zone, the A2b sign will be placed 50 m from the speed bump, a B30 sign indicating zone 30 will be placed just at the entrance to this zone, and a B51 vertical sign will be located at the exit from the zone. The speed bump itself does not need a sign where it is placed. A space of 15° meters must be respected between each speed bump.
They can be used up to the traffic of 6000 vehicles per day. In built-up areas, they are reserved only for zones 30, internal roads of rest areas, roads, or motorways. Outside built-up areas, these speed bumps are exceptionally used for parking areas and roads in housing estates. Pre-signaling between 50 and 100 meters from the speed cushion must be provided to inform road users and prevent vehicles from arriving too quickly.
