What alternatives are there to speed humps for preventing speeding in residential areas?

I agree with what you say about speed humps. I class them as a punishment although I’ve not done anything wrong. However, most speed humps near me are there because local residents complain about traffic speeding, so I would assume that most residents want them. I believe that all speed humps etc should be removed ASP. However, I would be interested to hear how you or any readers would solve the problem of speeding in residential areas.

Chicanes, brick paved areas, removal of separate sidewalks, bayed parking with planters; generally making drivers feel they are driving through a pedestrianised area.
