lol

They said in the news that they were clocking people at 30 through there, which was twice the recommended speed. All I could think was "30? That's it?"

OMG 30mph better not be the fastest they've clocked. I'm assuming average over the speed limit. hahaha

I still tear through there when I can despite the speed humps. I think it's stupid, personally. More obvious directions for those that can't use the roundabout would be nicer.

If everyone knew how to flow through it then we could ALL do 30+ mph... hahaha

They are speed UP's if you ask me, and they are near the end of your travels thru if you are traveling east west east thru them. Not before, but after basicly. LAME. They did not slow anyone down if you ask me.

Why not enforce the posted speedlimit if you care that much, everyone speeds thru them and if you wanted it to be 15, should have made them smaller...

What's retarded is that 15mph is just the recommended speed. If everyone can safely get through at 30, it shouldn't be discouraged.

Speed bumps are the last thing you should worry about through that roundabout.

Other drivers are your main concern. Many visits to the desert and driving in England have given me enough experience driving through them. Alaskan drivers? Not so much.

The speedlimit for the roundabout is 35...speed bumps are stupid when most people aren't even speeding. I can't wait untill the freeze. All those people that don't understand how their car goes down the road, aren't gonna be able to comprehend how a bump affects the handling. What ralph said. Here's a video of what speedbumps do to cars going round a corner. Watch the truck at the VERY begining go over a bump before he nearly kills a group of cyclists.
