Types of Rumble Strips
There are several types of rumble strips, each with unique features and applications. Some common types include:
Transverse Rumble Strips: These are placed perpendicular to the direction of traffic, typically at regular intervals, to alert drivers of upcoming hazards or changes in road conditions.
Longitudinal Rumble Strips: Installed parallel to the traffic flow, these rumble strips are often used on the edges of roads to prevent vehicles from drifting off the roadway.
Centreline Rumble Strips: Installed on the centreline of roads, these rumble strips aim to reduce head-on collisions by alerting drivers when they cross into opposing traffic lanes.
Speed Cushions: These are wider, raised rumble strips designed to force vehicles to slow down when passing over them, commonly used in residential areas and near pedestrian crossings.
Maintenance and Removal
While rumble strips require minimal maintenance, periodic inspection and cleaning are essential to ensure their effectiveness and longevity. Debris, dirt, or other obstructions can reduce the rumble strip's tactile and auditory warning properties, making it less effective in alerting drivers.
If removal or relocation is necessary, adhesive or pre-formed rumble strips can be detached from the road surface with relative ease. However, milled rumble strips may require resurfacing or patching to restore the road surface to its original condition.
