Which speed humps are more durable rubber, plastic or steel?

The answer to this question depends so much on the application and use of the speed humps. The obvious answer in that steel would be more durable, but what if they are being installed by the seaside?

Plastic may be better suited because they won’t rust in the salt air and can still withstand truck traffic. But if they are being installed in a busy transport depot and subjected to constant heavy truck traffic then heavy duty steel construction would be more appropriate.

Plastic are well suited to high traffic situations with occasional heavy truck traffic such as a shopping centre carpark, rubber are best used only for low volume car traffic such as a residential unit developments etc.
