SPEED HUMP on the 500 block of Lucerne Boulevard.

Residents interested in having speed humps installed on their neighborhood streets will be pleased to know that the Los Angeles Dept. of Transportation [LADOT] Residential Speed Hump Program will be accepting applications beginning Oct. 6.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program was curtailed in recent years. But, as of Thurs., Oct. 6, at 9 a.m., applicants prepared to represent their streets and do the work required will be able to apply online for speed humps on their streets.

The application process for the humps, which are designed to slow and calm traffic, is somewhat complicated. Applicants should note that a street on which an asphalt hump, approximately 12 feet in length, would be placed must meet the required criteria.

Only one application per street will be accepted, and the person making the request will become the block representative.

To ensure general support for the hump, LADOT will request the representative submit a form with signatures from residents on the street.

People interested in applying are encouraged to sign on to the LADOT website promptly at 9 a.m. Studying the rules on the website well in advance is advised! Each Council District will be allowed only 25 applications and, once the total of 375 applications have been submitted to LADOT, the period to apply will close. People with experience say this could be on that first day, Oct. 6.
