Speed Bump or Speed Hump?

20 May

Is it one in the same or is there a difference between the two? I had always heard SPEED BUMP, but not here in Florida. Maybe a Speed Hump is a larger, more menacing Speed Bump? Perhaps a Speed Bump is a kindler, gentler Speed Hump? Any idea? Or are you saying to yourself, “Honestly, I couldn’t care less.”

A) A Speed Hump from Barco Products                        

B) Daddy, Momma and Baby Speed Bump (Barco)

I have also noticed signs down here that warn, “TRAFFIC CALMING AHEAD.” Seems like TRAFFIC SLOWING AHEAD would make more sense … unless they’re now using Valium as a gas additive.
