They aren't speed bumps, they are simply speed tables and cars don't speed as fast as they do on Greer Rd. Plus, there is more visability on North California than on Greer Road.Even if they were speed bumps on N. California, cars could still speed in between the speed bumps.
The speed bumps on Greer Road might as well be speed tables because they have not slowed down cars (I live in the neighborhood and have to take that route often).
In the last year, many cars have been cutting through Greer Rd. and Louis Rd., from OrEx to Embarcadero Rd. and the cars on Greer are traveling much faster than on Louis Rd. I can't figure out where they are all going and why they are cutting through. Either they prefer to enter 101 on Embarcadero or are driving their children to Duveneck.
On Louis Rd., driving North, the morning school hours have up to 6 cars backed up, while last year, there was no back-up or one or two cars. If they open Garland as another elementary and South PA students attend, the back-up on Louis Rd. is going to be insane because it's too far for South PA students to bike or walk.
