What is traffic calming?
Traffic calming is the implementation of engineering measures to influence driver behaviors within residential neighbourhoods in an effort to address speeding, short-cutting, or other safety issues. The goal of traffic calming is to improve safety and the quality of life of a neighborhood without compromising the accesses to residents’ homes and businesses.
These measures come in various forms to suit each unique scenario and problem, including vertical deflection (raised crosswalks, speed humps, etc.), horizontal deflection (curb extensions, traffic circle, etc.), and obstructions (raised median, right-in/right-out island, etc.). Together these safety features, along with traffic education , afford our residents a sense of safety in their own neighbourhood.
If you have concerns regarding traffic calming in your neighbourhood, review the policy below to determine next steps.
