The speed bumps are unsuitable speed calming measures because they cause:

  • noise pollution
  • air pollution from vehicles speeding up and slowing down
  • damage to vehicles
  • excessive noise and disturbance to local residents
  • pain/discomfort to drivers & passengers, particularly those who suffer from medical conditions
  • causes delays / damage to emergency vehicles
  • hazard issue to motorcyclists due to bump positions
  • lack of visibility on approach

The road safety audit advised against these bumps due to the location being a hazard and relocation or removal was suggested.

    The bumps are too high, I think speed control methods are needed here, but these speed bumps are too high and sharp, making drivers brake suddenly and practically have to stop to prevent damage to their vehicles.

    Very painful going over them (as a passenger) with a broken arm.

    The speed humps are intended to ensure the 30mph limit is not exceeded, not to reduce a car's speed to 5 or 10 mph risking accidents from cars following who are surprised by the braking which is necessary. These particular speed humps are too high and do not allow a reasonable flow in the traffic. If they have to remain then the height should be reduced to a level which slows the traffic ...not stops it. It's a matter of time before an accident occurs.
    Please look at this again Colne PC.

    They are a hazard and I have an older car and have gone the long way round rather than go over these I would imagen they could be very dangerous in snow if deep one would no know they are there unless local ?? and or just ice conditions ???
