Speed Humps
Apply for a Speed Hump in your neighborhood

Everyone deserves safe streets, but if cars are speeding on your residential street, you can apply for a speed hump to be installed.

Before applying, please be aware that completing a speed hump request involves multiple steps of engagement and technical review. You should also know that due to LADOT’s limited budget, we can only construct a limited number of speed humps citywide. LADOT prioritizes requests based on technical feasibility and need. 

The Speed Hump Program opens up a review cycle every 6 months to take petitions for speed humps. The next speed hump application window will open Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 8 a.m. PST. The application will close when 450 applications (30 in each council office) have been submitted. This number allows our limited staff to study all the applications in a "batch" and build in a "batch" as efficiently as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
