Traffic Calming
It’s important to know that there is “no one-size fits all solution” to address traffic calming concerns.  Site-specific solution(s) are desirable given that every street and neighborhood is different.  Some of the variables may include:  posted speed limits, street slope and curvature, actual speeds, traffic volumes, street width, extent of sidewalks (or lack thereof), proximity to a school zone, proximity to a park, and/or traffic signals.  The anticipated cost of the solution, if construction is involved, needs to be carefully vetted to determine if it is cost-effective for a specific situation.
