Speed bumps are desperately needed for Al Sanbook St. in Umm Sequeim 2 (formerly St 9c). The street has 2 nurseries and no speed limit signs, no pedestrian crossing or speed bumps. All other streets in the area have speed humps apart from Al Sanbook St. When it comes to Children’s safety we should stop at nothing until such time as the road is made safe for all the little ones and indeed the adults using it. Home Grown Nursery has campaigned for over 3 years for this – please can something be done to help? The drivers on this street go so fast and take no notice of the 1 to 4 year olds that are in close proximity.
I drive on Al Sanbrook almost daily and i am surprised by the behaviour of many drivers, when its clear there are tiny kids going to and from these nurseries. Speed bumps are definitely needed.
I thoroughly agree on this issue! Sometimes you feel that drivers do their “quarter-mile-races” in Al Sanbook Street – right in between a living community with lots of small children around.
Thomas & RTA, please push all buttons you know to make this street safer!!!
Big thanks in advance !!
Im not entirely sure about adding speed bumps…
Allow me to clarify. Of course, I am all for safe driving, and naturally, would hope for people to stop speeding, especially in such areas where there are schools, small kids, or residential areas. However, issue ive personally noticed is that, many people whom speen around drive rather big cars (Land Cruiser, Patrol, etc) and they just speed over the speed bumps, which then proves them pointless.
so, what did RTA do in some areas? make HUGE speedbumps. yes, did this work…but now what has happened is its made it almost impossible for lower cars to get over without scaping something underneath.
I must admit, there is one speed bump in JLT that is huge, but smooth…so any car can get over it smoothly, but clearly big enough that one wouldnt speed over it (unless they want to jump into the hedge).
why not speed cameras? speed bumps are ok as long as they keep in mind ALL types of cars that drive in this country…
