The Town of Georgina is launching a Speed Hump Pilot Program in select trial locations. These locations have been determined to be areas where additional traffic calming measures are warranted. Speed humps are a new physical traffic calming measure in Georgina and will require motorists to alter their behaviour. The Town will be conducting before and after speed and volume studies to analyze the effectiveness of the program as well as ideal locations.

How do I request a speed hump on my street?
Speed humps are currently a trial program only. However, members of the public can submit a request for traffic calming through Service Georgina. Town staff will deploy a traffic counter and/or implement traffic calming measures in accordance with Town Policy RD-18.
What is the timing for speed hump installs/ construction activities?
Speed humps have a relatively quick installation once the contractor mobilizes, and each hump should not take more than a few days once crews are on site.
What if I do not want a speed hump in front of my house?
Speed hump locations and placement are subject to thorough field evaluation where staff consider a series of installation criteria, including speed hump spacing, proximity to driveways, proximity to intersections, posted speed limit, road geometry (curves, sight lines and hills) and existing infrastructure (manholes, hydrants, and culverts). If you have concerns about this matter, please contact the Town’s Project Manager to express your concerns and discuss the matter further.
