Traffic Calming: State of the Practice

Federal Highway Administration, Institute of Transportation Engineers

This report contains a synthesis of traffic calming experiences to date in the United States and Canada. It includes information on traffic calming in residential areas and in areas where high speed rural highways transition into rural communities. The report draws from detailed information collected on traffic calming programs in twenty featured communities, another 30 communities surveyed less extensively, and a parallel Canadian effort by the Canadian ITE (CITE) and the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC). The intended audience is transportation professionals.
