My neighborhood wants to have speed bumps/humps installed. What is the process?


The purpose of speed bumps/humps is to reduce excessive speeds on residential streets to ensure the safety of neighborhood pedestrians of all ages, deaf and blind individuals, cyclists, and animals to create calmer, more livable environment. The engineering criteria must be met which is explained in Evansville Municipal Code 12.06.030. There are also general conditions that must be med in placing or allowing speed bumps/humps which can be found in Evansville Municipal Code 12.06.040. In addition, the involved roadway segment on which the speed hump is to be placed must have neighborhood support. One vote per property owner is allowed and Fifty five percent of the property owners within a 100-yard radius, directly impacted by the speed hump location, must approve its placement.
