In a little over two months of being in place, the speed bumps in Chinatown are going away due to an “error in design”. That is the word from the mayor’s assistant, Rafael Arias.

Arias told the press that pressure from drivers forced the municipality to look again at the design and the decision to remove them.

The problem is that the speed bumps are extremely high. According to Arias, the design style will be maintained, just not as high to scrape the bottom of vehicles.

The Q reported (see “So, This is Barrio Chino?“) on the speed bumps and problems they presented to traffic along the Avenidas (east-west roads) that cross Calle 7.

The height of the bumps meant either vehicles would scrape bottom or would go around them. And with no proper signage, it wouldn’t be long before a vehicle or two would end up in one of the corner shops.
