(WIAT) — Speed tables have been in use in some Tuscaloosa neighborhoods since 2011.

Now, Tuscaloosa County leaders are looking to slow drivers down by adding a few more.

The average table is about 3 inches high and can be up to 14 feet long.

The flat-top tables work by shifting as cars drive over them.

A proposal by county commissioners is up for vote in the coming weeks.

The proposal comes after neighbors issued complaints of speedy drivers.
