N4T Investigators: Bad bumps

Posted: Updated:

Every time Martin Lebrecqu leaves his home he hears it. And every time he says it hurts more than just his ears.

"They're too high. Everybody scrapes when they come in," said Lebrecqu.

Lebrecqu is talking about the scraping sound he hears every time he drives over a speed bump inside the Bermuda Gardens Mobile Home Park.

"It's like running over a hill. And I worry about our shocks because even going slow it ruins the shocks. You can feel them go," said Bermuda Gardens resident Kelly Knopf.

Put in place to slow down traffic, residents say the bumps are causing drivers problems because they are too high and poorly designed.

Lebrecqu says he's complained to both park management and city officials with no results.

"It's scary cause you don't know what the bike is gonna do when it scrapes. It could take off in any direction. And I would hate to be underneath it when it happens," said Lebrecqu.

New 4 Tucson investigators reached out to both park managers and the city of Tucson.

Bermuda Gardens never answered the door or returned our calls.

The City of Tucson says that while they have strict codes regulating how speed bumps are built, they can't do anything because the speed bumps in Bermuda Gardens are on private property.

Lebrecqu and other Bermuda Gardens residents say they just want the bumps lowered a little bit.
