Are speed bumps throughout Rhondda Cynon Taf are nothing more than INVERTED POTHOLES, it would seem that throughout the county borough speed bumps vary in width length and height.
It would seem that Speed bumps have been constructed in some parts in a hit and miss operation with little regard to legislation on how where and when they are required.
For speed bumps to be legal I believe there must be a system of street lighting with lamps no more than 38 metres apart? If this is correct there are speed bumps with street lighting over 50 Meters and 60 meters apart in part of RCT. To allow the council to apply and comply with this legislation a 20 MPH speed limit must be functional
Also part of the legislation is if I am correct that speed bumps must not be over 100mm high again I don’t think this is the case some speed bumps constructed look well over 100mm high some in RCT look 150mm high is this correct?
I am informed that 500 vehicles per day on a road constitutes an excuse for local authority applying speed bumps clearly this is not the case in some streets so why place them there?
I was informed and I don’t know if it is correct that the senior member for Rhondda Cynon Taf Council said that the majority of residents don’t want speed bumps
Suggestive reading for highways department at RCT from the Association of British Drivers
I have also been informed that local garages have seen an increase in damaged suspension systems and tyres
The question is if you travel regularly over an illegal speed bump do we claim off the council?
