Introduction to Traffic Calming

When: Thursday, December 5, 2019, 3:00 - 4:30 PM ET

Webinar Description:
This webinar will review the concepts presented in Chapter 14th of the latest (7th) edition of the Traffic Engineering Handbook. The goal of this chapter is to provide the reader with an understanding of the current state of traffic calming, by presenting a definition and brief history of neighborhood traffic calming, by describing individual traffic calming measures, and by identifying key characteristics of those measures. This chapter acknowledges the strong foundations of traffic calming but reflects an understanding that the focus has shifted from simply slowing traffic, in an effort to reduce the effects of automobiles in neighborhoods, to better incorporating the needs of a full range of users (Complete Streets).

  • Learn the current state of traffic calming practice
