Town of Mount Royal regularly receives requests to have speed humps installed midway between two intersections.
These requests typically come from residents concerned about the safety of their young children. However, kids can be found on all the Town’s residential streets and, while speed humps do help reduce the average speed of traffic on streets, they also have a number of disadvantages.
Balancing the advantages with the disadvantages, our policy sets out the conditions and procedures whereby a limited number of speed humps can be installed on the Town’s streets.

Town of Mount Royal residents are encouraged to help us keep street corners free of obstructions that could block the view of drivers and pedestrians approaching the intersection.
If your property is located on a street corner, you should pay special attention to the height of your flowers and shrubs located near the sidewalk.
“On a corner lot, a space in the form of a triangle shall be required at the intersection of the edge of the street lines, in which all construction, work, planning or planting higher than seventy-five centimetres (75cm) shall be prohibited to assure visibility at the crossroads. This height is measured from the average height of the adjacent sidewalk.”
