Warning!!! Speed Bump Ahead

Warning!!! Speed Bump Ahead. Recently, more and more speed bumps have been popping up in and around the Mkhondo area.

Although a speed bump is a way of creating safety for all road users, it can sometimes also become a danger as well. Residents of Kempville are facing the same struggle with two new speed bumps being installed in front of H&F Hardware.

The speed bumps are being installed to stop road users from simply speeding past the stop sign, but now some dangers have arisen. Whilst the speed bumps are still being created, there is no construction warning sign in sight, nor any other signage to warn road users of the bumps ahead.

The residents of Kempville are also worried about the placement and height of the speed bumps. They are placed after the stop sign, meaning that the road users have to stop and then still pass over the bump.

The height is also an issue as you have to drive slowly over the bumps to avoid damage to your car. The speed bumps are a good thing to stop people from speeding, but the placement and height might just be of a greater concern.
