Won't speed bumps slow traffic on our streets?
Speed bumps are not recognized by the State of Maryland as an official traffic control device, and as such the Town of Thurmont does not use them on public streets. Speed bumps adversely affect drainage and snow removal and are ineffective. The faster a car crosses a bump the less it is felt.
