I happen to be one of Fresno's unfortunate citizens who has speed bumps in front of my house.
I'm the original owner and have been there for 41 years. Life was great during the non-speed bump years, but now, once a month, the city street sweeper makes a large deposit of refuse while negotiating the bumps, which I clean up -- not to mention the screeching of brakes, vehicles bottoming out and emergency vehicles being slowed down.
Bumps may have a place around schools, but that's about it. I hope the speed bumps in front of my house, as well as other speed bumps in residential areas, will be removed soon.
