Potential Changes On Requirements For Speed Bumps

Tuesday, March 14, 2017


Leaders in one local city are considering a way to make it easier for people to have speed bumps installed in their communities. Thanks for joining us. I’m Carl Brady. The Gadsden City Council gets 10 to 15 petitions every year to put in traffic calming devices, speed breakers or speed bumps. The council is looking to change the requirements for those who want these speed bumps in their neighborhoods. Currently, 90-percent of the property owners within the affected area must sign the petition, but council members are considering changing it to 75-percent. The City of Gadsden’s Director of Engineering Heath Williamson says a lot of thought and research goes into these types of changes. The Gadsden City Council will vote two more times to pass the new ordinances.
