Speed Hump Policy


The purpose of the speed hump policy is to enable New Westminster residents to initiate a low cost and low impact speed reduction on local roads, with reduced bureaucratic process.


When applied appropriately speed humps have proven to be an effective tool at reducing vehicle speeds and improving community safety and livability. The reduced speeds make it safer and more comfortable for all road users including cyclists and pedestrians. Speed humps, however, may not be an appropriate intervention for vehicle volume concerns.


The Speed Hump Implementation Process has been outlined in the flowchart below.
