Speed swamps

Posted By on Tue, Mar 12, 2019 at 12:33 PM

Last year three speed humps were installed on our street.
Most of the neighbours didn’t want it. The ones who wanted it were parents with small children who play on the street unsupervised. And hey, sitting on your step glued to your cell doesn’t count as supervision.
So now, the snow is melting and the water has no place to go.
Clearly the powers that be who side with neglectful parents didn’t quite think this through? The humps are so big that even driving slowly over them scrapes the underneath of your front and back bumpers!
I wonder if the city will provide lifeguards now so the unsupervised children don’t drown in the street swamps?
