There are many sleeping policemen in London which is probably understandable. But they are a nightmare when you are on the top of a double-decker bus with heavy shopping and trying to get down the stairs.
In my street they have adjusted the height of the humps at least three times, every time they get a little shallower, having disrupted travel down the road for three weeks whilst the adjustments are carried out.
They are slightly less noticeable on the single-decker "bendy buses" but as those are being phased out for the Route Master replacement...who knows.
