Speed Bumps Get Smart
What is dumber than a speed bump? It's hard to imagine anything dumber than those elevated areas of roadways that force drivers to slow down, but now speed bumps are getting smarter. In fact they are so smart that you can't call them speed bumps anymore. Instead, the preferred term is "traffic calming device," which, while popular in Europe for decades, is still in its infancy stages in the U.S. But as time goes on, more and more cities across America have begun installing these devices as a solution to speeding traffic on residential roads.
