Letter: Road humps are just an accident waiting to happen

Last week, you published an article concerning potholes.

Unless the potholes are completely across the full width of the road, they are less dangerous to drivers who drive carefully, as you are able to straddle them.

There are worse problems on the roads – namely speed humps. In Ollerton, speed humps recommend a speed of 20mph.

At 5mph, they will damage suspension, shock absorbers and steering track rods, and track rod end joints.
