Five of the seven speed humps that Windsor Terrace and Park Slope residents requested were unanimously approved by Community Board 7's Transportation Committee last week. The committee will present its findings to the full board and recommend that the five humps be created.

The approved speed humps in Windsor Terrace are
  • 11th Avenue, between Prospect Avenue and Sherman Street
  • Ocean Parkway, between Caton and Kermit places

The three approved in Park Slope are
  • 21st Street, between 5th and 6th avenues
  • 6th Avenue, between 21st and 22nd streets
  • 6th Avenue, between 22nd and 23rd streets

The request for 18th Street, between 7th and 8th avenues, was denied because its opponents made a strong case against it. Discussion about 21st Street, between 4th and 5th avenues, was postponed because no residents of the block were at the meeting.
