TRAFFIC CALMING - A GUIDE TO STREET SHARING

Traffic calming should be an essential part of each authorities' work, as it can have a significant effect on people's lives. If done well with aesthetically pleasing treatments, the street environment is enhanced while the traffic becomes a partner rather than the dominant party in the neighborhood. All people can move more freely and safely around their neighborhood. More children will grow up to be adults, with fewer scars, and others will live longer and more fruitful lives in a more pleasant environment. Traffic calming is a negative reaction to a problem caused by bad planning/zoning and/or street design. We need to be proactive in our approach and learn from the past and from others.
