The number of installed speed bumps to slow down road racers in Cyprus is now as high as 2,500 and proposals for additional ones are a daily demand.
This is what Philenews reported on Thursday citing insiders who also said the relevant authority on speed bumps is turning down new proposals on a daily basis.
The bumps aim to protect pedestrians, especially children and the elderly, and are installed mainly outside schools, churches and parks.
However, an insider said pressure in recent past years have increased the number of bumps almost unreasonably.
And that different construction in dimensions of such bumps is also recorded despite the fact that the standard one is posted on the website of the Department of Public Works.
Philenews was told that several non-standard ones had to be torn down although the vast majority of communities have failed to respond to the call of the Department.
