Let's not turn into Speed Bump City

Comments by city traffic engineer Rick Perez on the downside of using speed bumps to slow traffic(Jan. 21 news article, “Slowing drivers down is easier said than done”) confirmed my belief that the increasing use of this approach is wrong.

City road crews are supposed to be smoothing our roads, not making them bumpy. We should apprehend the chronic speeders and make more use of speed readerboards, not punish everyone that uses the road. Let’s reverse our current rush to become Speed Bump City, U.S.A.
