One of the social problems nowadays is speeding and the lack of driver education on the drivers, especially on highways and roads; however, even in areas where the speed should be low, accidents are common due to inattention and speeding or loss of control of the vehicle driver. Against this background, the use of speed bumps, also known as buffers, is an easy solution.
What Are Speed Bumps?
These are road safety complements that have the driver’s objective reducing the speed with which he drives to travel through a specific area so that he does not endanger pedestrians, his vehicle, or any road work that is being conducted.
In some places, they are known as spring breakers because they have such a height that if the driver does not reduce his speed, he can feel the impact on his vehicle’s suspension and even damage the springs (springs) of the shock absorbers.
The buffers’ functionality lies precisely in the driver’s fear of damaging his vehicle, as well as causing discomfort to the passengers who accompany him, or of any other inconvenience, such as spilling liquids on the seats. So they are instrumental in doing that drivers respect speed limits, signs, and pedestrians, especially in areas where great caution is required when driving, such as hospital exits, school entrances, or in residential subdivisions.
