Speed tables are traffic calming devices intended to slow down drivers. Speed tables raise the entire wheelbase of a vehicle to reduce its traffic speed and are more effective at controlling speed than the narrower speed humps, which are more effective at controlling speeds on low volume private driveways and parking lots.
As part of its comprehensive approach to reduce vehicular speeds on interior neighborhood roads, the Village has installed a number of speed tables throughout with the goal of reducing vehicular speeds and reduce cut-through traffic on roads which are not intended to carry the amount of cars that are currently traveling through these neighborhood streets. The map below shows the speed table locations throughout the Village (click on the map for a larger view or to download.)
Interested in temporary speed bumps on your street?
In response to an overwhelming number of resident requests for speed tables, the village developed the Temporary Speed Table Program.
Residents interested in installing temporary speed tables in their neighborhoods due to excessive speeding or poor traffic conditions, must submit a Temporary Speed Table Application and submit the completed application to the Public Services Department. As a requirement of the program, the application requires approval from 67% of the area's neighbors. Once the Public Services Department verifies and approves the application, the area(s) goes on an installation list that is provided to the speed table contractor for installation.
