Speed Tables, Humps and Lumps have effectively been used to reduce the average speed of traffic in many U.S. cities and jurisdictions around the world. The installation of traffic calming measures such as speed tables within the City of Arcata will be considered when engineering analysis determines the traffic, street geometry and physical characteristics of the site would allow such devices to enhance safety and calm traffic along the given street segment.
