Codes & Standards Discussion Forum 

Welcome to the ICC Codes & Standards Discussion Forum

The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.

are you talking on city streets or private streets. You might check with the fire department, some of their vehilces cannot handle certain designs.

If it is a PA state jurisdiction highway, I figure that PENNDOT has a specification somewhere that regulates speed bump configuration.

I attempted to find same on the PENNDOT website, but I was unsuccessful, due to time constraints and the size of their searchable Design Specification files and publications.

A call to your local PENNDOT District Office may be the easiest way to get this type of info.

I know that a number of PA municipalities simply reference the PENNDOT specs for construction / configuration requirements for their own jurisdiction roads.

For private entities, I guess the owners can prescribe whatever suits their needs.

Hope this helped.

[b]Is there any code regulations pertaining to speed bumps? Such as regulated height, width, or length. I checked the ANSI A117.1-1998 Accessible and Usable Building and Facilities, and the IBC 2003 and found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Mr. Thomas, could you be more specific as to your application? This might help to determine any code regulations and/or governing standards that might apply to your particular issue.
