''Traffic Calming is the combination of mainly physical measures that reduce the negative effects of motor vehicle use, alter driver behaviour, and improve conditions for non-motorized street users."
- Institute of Transportation Engineers
Traffic calming involves a “toolkit” of different methods that influence and manage speed. It is a traffic management strategy that combines traffic law enforcement, driver education and training and engineering. These traffic calming elements are promoted individually or collectively to achieve safe driving speeds on local streets.
We know that some drivers are driving at inappropriate speeds in some areas and we coordinate with the RCMP and ICBC to collectively reduce speeds in the City.
