Humps are hurting

Speed humps in Haute-Garonne are becoming more than their intended purpose, ie to slow speeding traffic.

Approach ramps have become shorter and higher so as to cause damage to tyres, suspension and steering of cars.

Low-slung sports cars can now ground their exhausts and body parts, to such an extent that I won’t risk entering some towns.

In odd places a speed warning system has been introduced and these seem to have a far greater effect on most, including me.

Please can we see more common sense used in the construction of these humps, so they cause less damage and more fines for those who take no heed of speed limits in built-up areas or near schools and playgrounds?
