Most accidents are caused by excessive speed or aggressive driver behavior. One of the most popular speed regulation implement is speed bumps. However, there are some problems with speed bumps as well – it has been noticed that speed bumps increase motor vehicle-induced noise. This article presents investigation on how speed bumps increase motor vehicle-induced noise. The investigations were carried out on Klaipėda and Vilnius streets during different time of the day and year. Brüel&Kjær sound level meters type 2260 and 2270 were used to investigate how much noise is caused by vehicles passing different types of speed bumps.
