How do I find out where radar speed boards and speed cushions are currently installed?

Do traffic signals or stop signs control speeding?
Traffic signals are not intended to be used as a speed control device, but rather a guide for drivers and pedestrians traveling through intersections and along roads.
Stops signs are not intended to be used as a speed control device. Extensive stop sign use tends to frustrate motorists which may result in low stopping compliance and increased mid-block vehicle speeds.
How do speed cushions impact emergency vehicles?
When speed cushions are placed properly, cars cannot straddle them but emergency vehicles with wider custom chassis can.
