Scrapping speed bumps is a ludicrous 'solution' to air pollution
It wouldn’t work, and our roads would become even more dangerous. Why is the government wasting time considering it?
My small residential street in south-east London, like many similar roads, has speed bumps. They’re not very pretty, and drivers tend to accelerate between them, slowing at the last moment to cross each hump with a thwack of the suspension.
So, why not get rid of them, as is reportedly being mooted by some in government, who seemingly believe smoother driving is the pain-free way to reduce the vehicle emissions that are choking so many of our towns and cities.
Vehicle pollution isn’t a crisis because of speed bumps. It’s because, to put it bluntly, people drive too often
