Speed humps would interfere with accessibility, if they were employed on multi-use trails - not everyone is a cyclist, a walker, or a jogger. Anyone with a mobility device or a stroller to push would be impeded - go back to principles of universal design when looking at these issues. Certainly careless cyclists impede other users as well - so if we can't set up separate lanes (e.g, on the rail trail) these areas may just need more policing, where cyclists on these trails must yield to pedestrians, otherwise they get ticketed.

Speed bumps on some roads, now -- that would enhance accessibility for everyone else.
