Speed Bump Application Window is now open


Request and Approval Process
(New application requirements - PLEASE READ)

Step 1. Online Application - A Block Representative for the street should go online at to find the next available open application period to apply for speed humps on their street segment. You will need to know the City Council District in which you reside. To determine your City Council District, type your address into the following link: Incorrect City Council Districts will NOT be accepted. To ensure there is initial support to conduct a study, the Block Representative must provide the name, address, and contact information (phone number or email address) of four (4) additional residents in support of the speed humps (representing 4 additional properties besides the Block Representatives). The residents must reside within the street segment where the speed humps are being requested. This information is required and must be entered into the online application. This will ensure that there is initial support for LADOT to conduct a study should the application be one of the first 25 fully completed online applications per City Council District.
*Your street segment must meet the following minimum criteria:
• Be a residential street
• Have only one travel lane in each direction
• Have a speed limit of 30 miles per hour or less

Please download the Pre-Application Information Sheet to help you gather the necessary information.

PLEASE NOTE: The Speed Hump Program open study spots typically fill up within 30 minutes or less.
Please have all the necessary information ready to submit. Incomplete or inaccurate applications will not be processed.

Step 2. LADOT Review -Applications will be reviewed to determine if the requested street segment meets the basic criteria for speed hump installation. LADOT will then conduct a study to determine if speed humps are feasible and justified based on technical criteria and available funding.

Step 3. Survey of Residents - LADOT will provide the Block Representative with a "Step 3" Survey of Residents Form if your street segment is found to be feasible and construction funding is available. The Block Representative is required to obtain signatures of support for the speed hump installation from at least two-thirds {66.7%) of the affected residences on the street segment to proceed.

Approval & Construction - LADOT deems a request approved for speed humps if it has met these criteria and will prioritize approved locations for construction. Speed humps, warning signs, and pavement markings are placed in accordance with requirements and determined by engineering judgment.
