The Cheshire East Council in the UK is reviewing all traffic-calming measures in the region to determine whether such safety schemes are still needed.

The review aims to assess the future requirement of speed bumps on roads, humps, chicanes and activated signs, which have been installed for accident reduction and environmental reasons.

Concerns raised by the public and emergency services have led the council to carry out the study. They claim that speed bumps can damage vehicles and generate noise and vibration.

Councilors are to consider the plans at a cabinet meeting next month.
