Can old tyres be used efficiently to make rubber speed humps?

A use for all those tyres rendered useless by speed humps? You guessed it: make them into speed humps: No mention in this article that the humps contributed to the early recycling of tyres, or any mention that rubber humps would do any better.

I wonder what the abrasion rate is against car tyres? If it is significantly less, or non-existent, then that removes my principle objection to speed humps. If they don't cause mayhem from burst tyres later in a car's journey, and can be straddled so they don't send shockwaves through the ground, then they have covered my main arguments against them. But a street with them installed still can’t be snowploughed
