  1. speed cushion(Noun)

    A form of speed bump, often one of a series, that allows larger (especially emergency) vehicles to straddle them without slowing down


  1. Speed cushion

    Speed cushions are traffic calming devices designed as several small speed humps installed across the width of the road with spaces between them. They are generally installed in a series across a roadway resembling a split speed hump. The design of speed cushions forces cars to slow down as they ride with one or both wheels on the humps. However, the wider axle of fire engines allows them to straddle the cushions without slowing down. Ambulance might have the same advantage when they are American style vehicles. In Europe and Australia, where vehicles like Mercedes Sprinter are most frequently used as ambulance vehicles, there is no advantage.
