Can speed bumps be installed on my residential street?
The City of Anna does not install speed bumps/humps on any public streets. There are several reasons we don’t install or recommend speed bumps on public streets:

1. Speed bumps slow down emergency vehicles. It is estimated that each hump would delay emergency vehicles 10 to 15 seconds.
2. Other cities have been held liable for damage caused by speed bumps.
3. Speed bumps do not always have the intended effect as drivers tend to speed up between them which creates an additional danger and nuisance.
4. Speed bumps tend to be divisive within neighborhoods. Drivers will usually look for alternate routes to avoid them which increases traffic (and speeds) on adjacent and nearby streets.
