Speed Table? That was a new one for me.
Also from last week's trip to North Carolina, I spotted this while out for a walk. What might not be as obvious from the picture below is the 20-foot-long, 3-4-inch raised platform, that spans the street. That's the speed table, a "midblock traffic calming device" designed to slow traffic down near the posted speed. That's way better than the teeth-rattling, suspension-testing speed bumps that we have to crawl over.
