Parking lot speed bumps are abrupt raised areas, traffic calming devices that use vertical deflection to slow down motor vehicles entering the parking space.
Speed bumps can be made from asphalt, concrete, rubber, metal, or recycled plastic. They are usually 2-6 inches high together with a travel length of 6 inches to 3ft. Their designs dictate the ease of crossing speed of 5mph or less hence appropriate for use in parking areas where safety for all is mandatory.
Types of Speed Bumps
The purpose of speed bumps
Speed bumps are used to ensure the parking lot is safe for all its users. They help in controlling the speed at which vehicles enter the parking area by ensuring drivers adhere to the set speed limit to enhance safety for pedestrians, other motorists, and even the structures available by avoiding either intentional or accidental damages.
Make sure your speed bumps are properly painted so vehicles and pedestrians are able to clearly see the speed bumps in your parking lot.
