Residential traffic management (RTM) employs physical, visual, psychological, social, and legal means to reduce traffic speeds, vehicle noise, visual impacts and through-traffic volumes in residential neighborhoods. The toolbox approach to RTM programs, devices, and actions begins with an alliance building toolbox, which becomes a resource for residents, staff, agencies, and elected officials. The actual RTM measures are divided into four separate toolboxes--speeding, volumes, accidents, and miscellaneous tools--and can be used to assist traffic engineers and citizens in solving specific traffic management problems. The advantage of using the toolbox approach is that users directly access tools without sifting through a large number of actions and devices. This article describes the alliance and RTM toolboxes in detail and provides many examples of tools from each toolbox.
