The installations responds to the requirement of city council of implementing traffic calming measures in downtown area to reduce speed limits to 20 mph (30 kph).

The street where the Speed Bump has been installed has traffic exceeding speed limits and there are many pedestrians crossing the street because it’s a commercial area with bars and restaurants with terraces and some shops. The vehicles who want to move to the 80% of the suburban areas of the town must drive through this zone.

Crossing roads in the centre of town, it is a zone with a high risk of suffering accidents and it is very dangerous, not only for vehicles but also for people.

Speed Bump Ecobam RDV 400/30 was installed with illumination system LED, the best model suitable for downtown areas and speed limits from 20 mph (30 kph).

Analyzing the traffic after installation, speed of vehicles has been significantly reduced and haven’t occurred any accident during the 6 months after the installation.

The Speed Bump is fully integrated in the zone, and its lightness makes the coexistence between people and vehicles much more comfortable and safer.

No complaints have been reported by neighbors or people who live in the zone.
