Constructed from 100% recycled tires, Checkers™ alley bumps are pre-formed to ensure a smooth, safe ride. The alley bump’s flexible design conforms to the contour of virtually any road surface. The bumps are simple to install and can be easily removed for storage or relocation. They are pre-drilled for anchoring spikes or lag bolts. Designed to withstand extreme temperatures, the bumps are resistant to moisture, oil, and ultraviolet light. They will not warp, crack, chip, or rot.

Molded highly reflective tape ensures that the alley bumps are visible even on a dark night. Cat’s eye reflectors further enhance visibility to alert drivers and the channeled bottom facilitates drainage as well as to cover cabling or piping.

Alley bumps were developed specifically to address speeding and cut-through traffic in city alleyways. They slow cars to a stop. There is much community activity in an alley, ranging from bicycle traffic to garage sales, and even neighborhood get-togethers. The city of Chicago has 1,926 miles of alleys – the largest in the United States!
