Most residential restraint schemes abroad are planned as part of urban rehabilitation in which landscaping is integrated with traffic management, but a number are limited to traffic controls. The schemes presented in this paper depict the size and nature of the areas planned and a variety of means used to control traffic. In Nagoya, Japan, which has one of the most inventive and comprehensive policies, a net reduction of 43 percent in fatalities and a 39.4 percent decrease in severe injury accidents were experienced within the cell area. At the same time, an average decline in noise levels of 3 dBA was recorded in some of the cells. Of the problems that have arisen from these schemes, one of the most common is residential and spillover parking. Another, noted in Uppsala, Sweden, was a map change that required some period of adjustment for motorists.
