Project Description

By design, traffic calming is a self-enforcing traffic management approach that forces motorists to alter their speed or direction of travel. The purpose of traffic calming is to improve safety, especially for pedestrians and bicyclists, and to improve the environment or “livability” of streets for residents and visitors. By decreasing volume and/or reducing speed the number and severity of accidents can be greatly diminished.

Traffic Calming techniques may include education, enforcement, or engineering to shift traffic patterns and/or reduce speeds. Most traffic calming measures focus on engineering changes to alter driver behavior. Traffic Calming techniques may include physical changes such as roadway narrowing, traffic circles, pavement markings, signage and others.
