cars. Also, if you're one of the houses near the humps you have to
listen to "bump" all day/night long. And... I don't know if this is
true... but someone told me they reduce your property value.
It seems like stop signs could achieve the safety we need without the

First, I'd like to thank you for trying to make our neighborhood safer.
I know it must take a great deal of effort on your part and we're lucky
to have such interested citizens as part of our local community.
I'm also confused on this issue. If I understand this correctly,
there's federal regulations that prohibit us from having (less

humps to solve the problem - all of which are paid for by the city
Ok, I understand it's government and they do things in mysterious ways
:-) but can you explain this a bit for us?
I'm also concerned that if we get speed humps on Rosewood or Plymouth,
the speeding problem will just shift to neighboring streets. Do you
know anything about that?
