There have been mixed reviews on the new speed tables installed on Viseneau Dr. in Orléans. Some residents do not believe they are not doing enough to stop people from speeding.

“They are so low - cars are flying through them,” said resident Mike Mckay.Another concerned resident, Pat Teolis, said they asked the city to install speed humps instead, but they were told those affect OC Transpo Buses.

“Other routes in Ottawa have gradual speed humps so we’re a bit perplexed by what they’ve done,” Teolis said.

A speed table is designed to raise nearly the entire wheelbase of a vehicle so drivers are forced to slow down. They are roughly the same height as a speed hump or bump, but are several metres longer.
