English term or phrase: speed bump
En Chile, la traducción para este término es "lomo de toro". Son los topes que colocan en los caminos para que los automóviles disminuyan la velocidad. ¿Cómo se llama un "lomo de toro" en el resto de América Latina (específicamente en Perú, Colombia y México)? Muchas gracias de antemano.
