Speed Humps In Raleigh Neighborhood Hindering Firefighters
Posted November 2, 2001 7:08 a.m. EST
RALEIGH, N.C. — Raleigh's fire chief claims slowing down speeders is slowing emergency response times.
Chief Earl Fowler says speed humps in the Brentwood neighborhood are slowing down firetrucks by a minute or more. He says that in an emergency, that minute could make a big difference.
Fowler also says the humps are damaging the frames of the firetrucks.
The Raleigh City Council will discuss the matter next week.
