The guidelines to be followed before a decision for laying a speed breaker can be read at this site

But in many places around Cuddalore, speed breakers are laid as
five successive humps at a span of 60 feet. One such is shown in the above picture. Location : Semmandalam - Kammiampet road connecting Panruti road.

From the traffic point there should be only one speed breaker to control the traffic, but such a number of humps in the name of speed breakers is proving a hindrance to the road users.
