    Es lo que en Colombia llaman "policia acostado". Son los reductores de velocidad: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reductor_de_velocidad

    SPEED BUMPS OF LATIN AMERICA (A COMPREHENSIVE LIST)

    acostado (shortened version of policía acostado)
    Boyas

    A row of “boyas” – another of the many forms of Latin American speed bump.

    badén (a ‘dip’ in Latin America; a ‘bump’ in Spain)

    banda sonora (like a vibrador)

    bordo

    boyas (a row of small metal domes)

    chapa, chapa acostado

    durmiente

    guardia acostado/durmiendio/muerto (C. Am, Caribbean)

    giba (Per)

    lomada (Ury)

    lombada (Brz)

    lomo de asno (Spain)

    lomo de burro (Arg, Ury)

    lomo de toro (Chi)

    muerto (Ven, DR)

    muro (Ecu)

    murito (ESv)

    policía acostado (Col, DR)

    policía durmiendo (C. Am, Caribbean)

    policía muerto (Caribbean)
    Tope

    A rural “tope” in Mexico.

    reductor (widely understood)

    reductor de velocidad, reductor (widely understood, seldom used on signs)

    redutor de velocidade (Brz)

    resalto

    rompemuelles (Bol)

    rompespalda

    tope (Mex)

    túmulo (ESv, Gtm, Hon; in some areas this term is reserved for the wider bumps)

    vado



    *The verb coger, which simply means to catch or grab, is used in Spain and in much of Latin America without issue. But in parts of Central and South America (most notably, in Argentina and the Southern Cone) it refers to sexual intercourse and is considered vulgar (and sometimes hilarious). It’s roughly equivalent to chingar in Mexico or fuck in English, but lacks the versatility of these terms.

    The classic example is the gallego (Spaniard) who visits Buenos Aires and asks a porteño (Buenos Aires native) where he can “coger el autobús,” to which the porteño replies, after careful consideration, “por el caño de escape” (in the exhaust pipe).



    Feature image (top of page): Sign warning of an upcoming “giba” in Cajamarca, Peru.

    Acá en Argentina tb se usa, aparte del lomo de burro, el serrucho para reducir la velocidad. Prefiero el lomo de burro sin ninguna duda.
