No Table … There’s no actual table but a SPEED TABLE.
There are 3 versions of Speed Calming Street Measures.
Coming from the mainland, I am only familiar with 2 versions, Speed Bump and Speed Hump.
Here in Hawaii, there are lots of Speed Tables.
Basically Speed Bump, Speed Hump and Speed Table are all related,
differing primarily in the length of the raised portion of the impediment.
What is the difference between Speed Bump, Speed Hump and Speed Table?
A speed bump is typically a thin rounded design.
It is a raised pavement structure usually from two to six inches high.
Speed hump is usually derived from speed bump.
It is designed not to exceed four inches high and are usually from 10 to 12 feet long.
The purpose of the length is to allow the entire vehicle to be on the hump at once before it goes down the far side onto the pavement.
Speed table is essentially derived from speed hump.
It’s about the same height (three to four inches) but longer than speed humps.
Also, it is usually a long flat top and ramps that may be more gently sloped than a speed hump. This gives them the ability to handle vehicles at higher speeds. Typically, a speed table might be 22 feet long with a 10-foot top and six-foot ramps on either end.
Wowie! Hope these information were helpful and educational.
Also, many of you have asked if my new home is behind the white picket fences.
I’ll be sharing soon … thinking to do weekend posts designated about my
new home, basically sharing the island of Maui, HI.
