This course introduces an engineering tool whose purpose is to address excessive traffic speed and/or cut-through traffic on residential streets. The course provides information that can help municipalities establish a traffic calming program for their roadways. This course defines traffic calming, describes various traffic calming devices, outlines potential positive and negative impacts on a neighborhood, and reviews a sample traffic calming program. It also investigates related issues, such as impacts of traffic calming devices on liability, roadway maintenance, and emergency service. Participants perform case studies, applying traffic calming measures to address traffic concerns.
Intended Audience: Individuals who receive complaints about speeding and cut through traffic and want to respond appropriately to address these problems, including: street superintendents, engineers, municipal managers, planners, and public works employees. Law enforcement personnel and elected officials may also benefit from this course.
