BROOKLYLN - Community Board 7 has approved requests for five speed bumps in Windsor Terrace and Greenwood Heights.

One speed bump is expected to be installed on Ocean Parkway, two on 21st Street and two on Sixth Avenue.

A community board official said that residents fought for two years to get the speed bumps installed after drivers began treating their blocks like raceways. He says the Department of Transportation conducted studies at the sites and deemed them feasible for speed bumps.

There was no word on when they will be installed.
