I would venture to say that if these speed breakers do not have proper signage indicating their presence, the HOA may get a rude awakening when someone sues them. Where I live the city put some in around a park area, failed to put up warning signs, an out of town visitor hit one and did a lot of damage. The city paid dearly for their oversight.

this was my thinking when i sent them a letter outlining the lack of signage and markings

thats why the blind guy came out and painted the humps, no dis respect to blind people.
i have a feeling when my homeowners insurance is made aware of the lack of signage and markings which would cause fire or ambulances to drive 5 mph to get to my place that the rates will go up...which then an ambulance chaser will be hired to bring it to light in a courtroom

Those double yellow lines reminded me of the double center lines on the tarmac in front of a hanger in Atlanta. The lines were somewhat faded and the job went to a very capable, but somewhat quirky A&P mechanic, that maybe thought his mechanical prowess was being under utilized. Needless to say, he was not too happy about painting close to a thousand feet of bright yellow double lines in the hot Georgia sun.

About a week later, I was taxing a L-1011 from the run-up hole over to the gates but had to stop the aircraft in front of the hanger to wipe the tears from my eyes. From our two story perch, and quite possibly the only way to view his handiwork, 'Dirt' (branded by his co-workers) had done a superb job...lines straight as an arrow and the edges were sharp and cleanly painted. Only problem was, he had displayed his displeasure by crossing the two lines over each other directly in front of the hanger, then the lines continued on their parallel course in a professional manner. Two months had passed before the transgression had reveled itself...management was NOT pleased.

You had to know Dirt to fully appreciate the humor. AFAIK, those lines are still in place and one of Dirt's finest legacies. I do miss the Dirtman. Bob

We live at the end of a private road that has several famlies with small children. We have had a problem with people using gps thinking they could take a shortcut and flying up the road turning around and setting speed records going back out. Several years ago we had to pay to have it repaved, when the mention of speed bumps came up there was not one person that did not want them. Best thing we ever did, as it slowed things down. We do keep them painted so no one can say they did not see them. A sloppy paint job is better then no paint. If you do not like the job they did paint over the job with black paint, and repaint them yourself.

If they aren't the right size and even if they have signs up it's and option. Our town put some up near the lake and many of us had damage to our boats and trailers. They were huge! And that was going about 5mph over ours. Someone sued and they had to pay damages and remove them and reinstall them to the proper size.......which they never put them back in because of all of the legal costs, removal fees and all the damages that they were billed.
