Streets and Sidewalks, People and Cars: The Citizens’ Guide to Traffic Calming is written specifically for residents who want to create safer neighborhood streets. This hands-on guide gives citizens the tools they need to evaluate and improve the safety of their neighborhood residential and commercial streets.
Prepared by Walkable Communities Director Dan Burden and published by CivicWell (formerly LGC), the easy-to-read, 52-page guide also details the collaborative public process through which citizens can enlist the help of fellow community members and local government officials to diagnose problems and identify and prioritize workable solutions.
The Citizens’ Guide to Traffic Calming includes:
- A comprehensive toolkit with practical profiles of over 20 different traffic calming measures.
- Forms to audit street safety and traffic speeds/volumes.
- Steps to implement traffic calming measures.
- Helpful photographs and diagrams.
