Speed Bumps, Speed Humps, Traffic Calming

Several residents have mentioned wanting more information about how they can petition for speed bumps or speed humps on their street.

NOTE: The HOA has heard from homeowners who would like speed bumps, as well as from homeowners who oppose speed bumps.

Any homeowners interested in pursuing the matter must follow the Town’s Traffic Calming Policy which can be downloaded here (PDF).

In Summary:

  1. A petition (51% of residents) and Town Council approval is required.
  2. The installation must meet the appropriate volume and speed criteria.
  3. Neighborhood residents are responsible for funding. The Town of Summerville shall not fund speed humps.
