IMO they are far from an ideal solution. Speed humps directly before an intersection can be a distraction. That is what I've found as a motorist driving through the Pigdon St roundabout. On my approach to the intersection I now have to pay more attention to the road conditions. I'd prefer to be giving my full attention to the traffic conditions in the roundabout that having to worry about the road conditions.
As a cyclist going through that roundabout I don't trust motorists one bit. But the speed hump doesn't change that, it just changes their speed.
