Speed bumps should be eliminated

May 22, 2014
The Town Crier

DEAR EDITOR:

All of the speed bumps should be outlaw and removed both in the many plazas and roadway which exist today.

Due to the delicate front-end suspensions technology of today's cars it is very dangerous and can do major damage with any front-end alignment and their independent tie-rod mechanism. Today's cars do not have the old shock absorber which would had handled such ignorant and unnecessary speed bumps.

All of these speed bumps need to be replace with either the rumble strips -- such as used with approaching the toll gate of the Turnpike and / or construction lane changes on the major highway -- or the manual stop sign in a concrete base with the designated crosswalk.

The sole purpose to slow the car traffic speed within the many plazas and / or roadway will cause the cars approaching such speed bumps not to slow down but to come to a stop in order to crawl over these very unnecessary speed bumps. Many times within some plazas are speed bumps, and then about three feet after crossing the speed bump is a stop sign with its designated crosswalk for the pedestrians. Another example of eliminating all speed bumps permanently.

Sincerely,

Neil D. Frasca
