Green Acres wins speed hump battle with city of Detroit

The city of Detroit gave one of its nicer neighborhoods its wish Tuesday by installing speed humps to slow traffic for children who play in the area.

The enhancement along Lichfield Road in Green Acres comes after the city tore out a set of humps residents had independently installed because they didn't meet specifications. A group of concerned fathers crowd-sourced more than $2,000 for those after the city repeatedly denied requests for official humps.

Located near 8 Mile and Woodward, Green Acres is one of the city's more affluent neighborhoods, with a high concentration of voters and homes that sell for more than $200,000.
