- The number of fatalities from traffic accidents is steadily rising at an alarming rate. However, this has been linked to bad road conditions, drunk driving, excessive speeding, disobeying traffic laws, and irresponsible or reckless behaviour on the part of road users. To avoid this ugly experience, several measures have been implemented over time, including traffic calming measures. Speed arrestor is essential for enforcing speed limits, deterring vehicle overspending and preventing incidents that could result in injuries, deaths, and vehicle damage to improve overall road safety. This study analyses the relevant articles to explore the construction of speed bumps on west African road infrastructure. The study's findings indicated that speed arrestors exhibit both positive and negative characteristics. To maximize the potential, recommendations were made.
