The City Council has approved speed humps on Via Cordova between Ortega Highway and Calle Arroyo. Speed humps are longer and flatter than speed bumps and have a smoother transition from the road onto the hump. Via Cordova residents have complained about speeding, especially on weekends and during soccer season, which increases traffic coming to and from Cook Park on Calle Arroyo.

It's a milestone Rich Rider would have preferred to reach last season. But the Cal Lutheran coach will take it. As a credit to his program's stability. As a product of his players' dedication.

The street will get "speed tables"--longer and less jarring to motorists than the traditional humps. City crews will begin building five tables on Oxnard Street between Fallbrook and Woodlake avenues this week at a cost of about $12,500.

Coto de Caza this month removed speed bumps from its major streets after fire officials said the traffic-slowing devices were hindering efforts by firefighters to quickly respond to emergencies. Now the Orange County Fire Authority has added language to the fire code requiring greater review by the agency before speed bumps are installed in areas within its jurisdiction. The revisions come when a growing number of cities across the U.S.

Hung Ngo is butting heads with the city's bus service. More accurately, perhaps, the buses are butting into him. For the sixth time in 3 1/2 years, an unmanned Municipal Railway bus crashed into Ngo's home near Ocean Beach. "We're still waiting for the city to settle our claim for damage in the last accident," he said last week. That was on New Year's Day last year.
