Like other Ft. Lauderdale business owners, you want to provide a safe and well-organized environment for your customers. A clear and tidy parking lot is the key to helping consumers have a positive experience at your business.
If you’re considering commercial driveway installation in Ft. Lauderdale, then you need to think about details such as whether or not you’ll need speed bumps.
The Debate About Speed Bumps
Some people feel that installing speed bumps is a waste of money or even a hazard. Speed bumps can cause damage to vehicles and people may be tempted to drive recklessly by swerving around them. Speed bumps can even slow down emergency vehicles on their way to the scene of an accident.
Such drawbacks associated with speed bumps tend to only affect residential streets. As a business owner, you’ll likely find that the benefits of having speed bumps far outweigh any potential negatives.
Why You Should Get Speed Bumps in Your Business Driveway
Why are speed bumps important for businesses?
Prevent accidents. Slowing down traffic speed on your property reduces the chances someone will skid on a wet surface or miss a tight turn.
Reduce lawsuits. It’s your responsibility to protect pedestrians on your property. Speed bumps will help drivers have time to yield to pedestrians and avoid messy lawsuits against you.
Improve traffic flow. Speed bumps will keep your business traffic regulated and help customers avoid confusion and traffic jams.
Save money. Speed bumps are cheaper than installing high-tech traffic control systems and they last a very long time making them an excellent investment in your business.
