(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Speed What?

 

Up north we call it a 'speed bump.'
Down south, I guess we call it a 'speed table' (although I did not know that until now).
What do you call them?

  25. I've only ever heard of speed bumps but I do notice that some are made differently. Did a quick search, apparently there is a difference between speed bumps, humps, and tables!! I never really put much thought into it before.
