The city of Tulsa wants to revamp the way speed humps are built. A controversial hump in a south side neighborhood is one reason.

At first the humps were too short. Now the city thinks they're too tall. And if a road doesn't have a curb, it's a big temptation for drivers to avoid them all together.

City councilors and traffic engineering met to discuss the problems. They think a better design will help, but they remain committed to this method to slow down traffic.

Speed humps are only installed on streets where most of the neighbors agree to it.
