Speed Lumps

I’ve heard of Speed Bumps and Speed Humps but here in Alameda we have Speed Lumps. What exactly is the difference and imagine the bewilderment to the road construction crew when they go into the back of their truck to pick up the the appropriate sign,

“I don’t know Larry, they kind of look like humps to me, what to you think Moe?”

“Nah, it looks more like a bump, check out the curvature on the approach.”

“Yeah, but if you look at the peak, yeah, there, from the driver’s perspective, it’s less of an angle, almost flat, this is more like a lump to me,”

Our taxdollars hard at work. . .
