Traffic calming on Oakfield Road
Traffic calming on Oakfield Road
The Selly Park area is a 20 mph speed limit zone. This is signed at the entrances and reinforced with road markings and traffic calming measures.

Here, a speed cushion is being crossed by a small car. The road had recently been resurfaced and small asphalt cushions reinstated. The very low height of the cushions only has a limited effect on vehicle speed, particularly for larger vehicles or those with wider axle widths.

Note that the car seen here may not have been exceeding the limit - the blurring is for effect.
