Seattle Installs Speed Bumps To Slow Speedy Bicyclists...

SEATTLE -"Speed bumps are being installed on Seattle's Second Avenue bike lane in an effort to slow speeding bicyclists.

The busy downtown area has a steady mix of pedestrians, hotel entrances and parking garage driveways.

But, workers say too many bicyclists are going too fast through the area.

A series of four speed bumps will be added to the bike lane. Crews are also installing more than 150 planter boxes to help separate the bike and parking lanes.

A city traffic engineer says the speed bumps will help create well-marked passenger load zones.

The new speed bumps and planters are expected to be in place by mid-April."
