For everyone recommending changes for our community or considering signing said petition.. please consider all. A. Most people breaking the laws in our neighborhood are people who don't live in Rocky Point. These are people coming into the state parks. So do we petition the state to close the parks and make our community gated? B. Are expensive to install and expensive to maintain—Speed humps can cost $4,500 to $7,500. [Source: The Washington Post, Sept. 9, 2008] Interfere with response times of emergency vehicles—Each speed hump costs fire trucks ten seconds in response time. [Source: ABC Orlando/WFTV, Jan. 28, 2010; and Fire Capt. Jeffrey Martin, St. Petersburg Times, Feb. 2, 2008; and the Tampa Tribune, Sept. 20, 2008] Reduce property values—Prospective homebuyers reject home sites near speed humps. [Source: Tampa Bay Online, Sept. 30, 2009] Increase noise levels—Speed humps usher in a constant barrage of scraping cars and engines revving over the humps. [Source: Tampa Bay Online, Aug. 12, 2009] Increase wear and tear on residential and commercial vehicles—Speed humps are a source of excessive wear on tires, brakes, suspension systems, shock absorbers and rattle dashboards. [Source: The Natchez Democrat, Oct. 28, 2009] Expensive to remove—Municipalities, under pressure by citizens and enforced by the courts, have been forced to remove speed humps at great expense to tax payers. [Source: Tampa Bay Online, Sept. 30, 2009] Increase air pollution—On roads with speed humps, carbon monoxide emissions increase by 82 percent, carbon dioxide emissions double and nitrogen oxide increases by 37 percent. [Source:, April 22, 2009] Reduce fuel efficiency and increase gas consumption—By forcing drivers to brake and accelerate repeatedly, speed humps will cause a car that normally that gets 58.15 mpg travelling at a steady 30mph to deliver only 30.85 mpg. [Source:, April 22, 2009] C. I did not purchase a home in an HOA, therefore I dont want to live in a dictatorship. I spent good money as well as everyone on this page did to feel like home is just that. I have a 38ft boat on a trailer that i have paid good money for and want to keep it in great shape, I also paid good money for a 40 ft car hauler, and own very expensive exotic cars. Who is taking up the bill for issues with these, there no HOA so I'd assume the city.. then the decrease in property value.. who writing me that check because speed humps decreased my property value? I am all about slowing people down but these are just a few of my arguments.. people will always break the law. If I had a crappy car that I didn't care about , guess i would still speed over the humps and then just be airborne.

We petition for

  • Decrease speed limits in Rocky Point Stuart Fl 34997
  • More visual or lighted speed limit signs
  • Increased police presence
  • No speed calming devices such as speed tables, speed bumps or speed humps.
