Traffic calming is a term used generically to describe a process which seeks to control motor vehicles in a number of ways for safety and amenity reasons. The process can range from the use of individual measures to control local traffic, to an overall traffic restraint concept in conjunction with public and cycle transport improvements, parking controls, lorry management and pedestrianisation, through to measures to reduce main road speeds through villages. This report presents information on experience gained on various works undertaken in the UK, specifically from the Transport and Road Research Laboratory (TRRL) Urban Safety Project, and in West Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands.
