**New Speed Hump Application Process**
Thank you for your interest in the Citywide Residential Speed Hump Program. Review the 2024 Speed Hump Program Evaluation Guidelines (Español) and 2024 Speed Hump Program Fact Sheet (Español) to determine if your street meets the minimum criteria required for speed hump installation before you decide to apply. Only one applicant per street segment request will be allowed. The applicant will be the Block Representative and will be responsible for all related correspondence with our staff. Please note the changes to this process as noted in Step 1 bold text below.
* Your street segment must meet the following minimum criteria:
- Be a residential street
- Have only one travel lane in each direction
- Have a speed limit of 30 miles per hour or less
This request for speed humps is a 3-Step process that includes multiple levels of review.
Step 1: A neighborhood "Block" representative submits an online application. To ensure there is initial support to conduct a study, the Block Representative must provide the name, address, and contact information of four (4) additional residents in support of the speed humps (representing 4 additional properties besides the Block Representatives). Residents must reside within the street segment where speed humps are being requested.
*Print this Pre-Application Information Sheet (Español) to ensure you have all of the required information needed to apply.
Step 2: Applications will be reviewed to determine if the requested street segment meets the basic criteria for speed hump installation. LADOT will then conduct a study to determine if speed humps are feasible and justified based upon technical criteria and available funding.
Step 3: LADOT will provide the Block Representative with a “Step 3” Survey of Residents Form if your street segment is found to be feasible and construction funding is available. The Block Representative is required to obtain signatures of support for the speed hump installation from at least two-thirds (66.7%) of the affected residences on the street segment to proceed.
You may submit a Step 1 online application if your street segment meets the minimum criteria.
The next Open Application Day will be Thursday, March 21, 2024 at 9:00AM.
