Abstract

Traffic Calming Measures are compilation of acts done to reduce vehicle speed, to ensure the safety of road users and also to ease the residents nearby live in a tranquil environment. The most effective traffic calming measure is road hump as it involves vertical deflections in the carriageway. Due to excessive number of vehicles and speeding issue in campus, this study is conducted to investigate on the effectiveness of road humps in the campus of Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Perak. The suitability of the design of existing road humps will be re-evaluated. From this, the optimum traffic calming measures can be done to improve the current traffic conditions. Spot Speed is measured at places in campus with and without the existence of road humps to investigate whether the speed limit within the campus which is 40 km/h is complied. Questionnaires are also distributed to the community of different ages and status in the campus. Hence, the effectiveness of road humps is determined. Results from the questionnaires shows that majority of students agree that road humps do help in reducing vehicles speed although it causes discomfort to them due to the excessive number of it. However, majority confessed that they would not abide by the speed limit without the existence of road humps. This is further verified by results from Spot Speed Survey. Evidently, road humps help in reducing the average speed of vehicles in the campus and making sure the speed limit is complied
