Detroit — Hit the brakes: City officials want motorists to slow down in Detroit neighborhoods.

Detroit has earmarked $11.5 million to install 4,500 speed bumps next year. About 1,200 speed bumps have been installed this year, two years after the program started with 32.

“Probably the single biggest neighborhood concern we have been hearing from residents this year is speeding and reckless driving along residential side streets,” Mayor Mike Duggan said.

“We know this is a priority for residents, so we are making the expansion of this effort one of our highest priorities for the next year,” Duggan said.

Streets with speed limits of 25 mph will get the speed bumps. Installation is expected to start next spring.
