[Image taken 31.10.21] Haxby Road, York junction with White Cross Street. Cushions were installed summer 2021 – June? (Update see NOTE: #175422) LTN 1/20 ( says:

7.6.8 Speed cushions are a form of road hump and are therefore subject to The Highways (Road Hump) Regulations 1999. The dimensions allow wide tracked vehicles such as buses, ambulances and HGVs to straddle them. Cushions are not a preferred form of traffic calming on cycle routes because they constrain the ability of cyclists to choose their preferred position in the carriageway and are particularly hazardous to riders of three wheeled cycles.
