The document reports the state of traffic calming programs in the United States. It also includes historical information about programs in other countries. For the purposes of this report, traffic calming involves changes in street alignment, installation of barriers, and other physical measures to reduce traffic speeds and cut-through volumes in the interest of street safety, livability, and other public purposes. This report focuses mainly on physical measures, including street closures and other volume controls under the traffic calming umbrella. Education and enforcement activities, such as neighborhood traffic safety campaigns, fall outside the umbrella but will be mentioned where relevant.

Traffic calming promises to be an important tool for improving the quality of life in American cities. It slows down or diverts automobiles so that streets are safe and inviting to pedestrians, bicyclists, and children at play. Traffic calming also makes drivers aware that they are sharing street space with other users. Used successfully in Europe, traffic calming is now being considered by many U.S. cities. This report examines the myths of traditional traffic planning and how such planning must change to provide safer streets. It describes basic traffic calming principles and techniques and examines their effects on traffic volume and speed in neighborhoods. This report also shows how to avoid the pitfalls some communities have experienced in integrating traffic calming into their planning programs.

A comprehensive how-to manual for traffic calming in the United States. Planners and engineers can look to this manual for guidance on the appropriate use, design, and signing and marking of traffic-calming measures. For local officials, developers, and community associations, it is an introduction to the goals and tactics of traffic calming. Based in part on the first traffic-calming manual taken through a formal rule-making process and adopted by a state department of transportation as a supplement to its roadway design manual, this book catalogs principles that have been modified by many local jurisdictions to match local priorities and preferences. Standardization is key to the success of traffic-calming initiatives, and this book explains the processes, tools, and design needed to create a standard traffic-calming program. It also shows how municipalities can build needed flexibility into such programs. Signage and markings are also key, and a chapter is devoted to these issues. This is the book that states and municipalities need to create effective traffic-calming programs.

The purpose of this research was to evaluate the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT's) Residential Traffic Calming Guide. A 2-year pilot program served as a means to evaluate the Guide. The results of the evaluation enabled VDOT to strengthen its Guide based, to a large extent, on the lessons learned in the pilot program and to prepare for effective statewide implementation of this customer service-oriented program. This report documents the activities of the pilot program and VDOT's Residential Traffic Calming Committee, which administered the program. Numerous conclusions were drawn by the researchers based on specific experiences during the pilot program. The conclusions ranged from the usefulness of specific elements of the Guide, actions that worked well for a particular county, the description of side effects from having the pilot program in place, lessons learned from specific traffic calming projects, and a list of other activities that have occurred under the moniker of traffic calming. The recommended changes to the Guide that were identified during this effort and incorporated in the latest version of the Guide are described. An implementation plan outlines a suggested approach to transition from a pilot to a statewide program. The plan emphasizes the Guide as a component of a residential traffic management program.

Many rural communities have developed around highways or major county roads; as a result, the main street through small rural communities is often part of a high-speed rural highway. Highways and county roads are characterized by high speeds outside the city limits; they then transition into a reduced speed section through the rural community. Consequently, drivers passing through the community often enter at high speeds and maintain those speeds as they travel through the community. Traffic calming in small rural communities along major roadways is common in Europe, but the U.S. does not have experience with applying traffic-calming measures outside of major urban areas. The purpose of the project was to evaluate traffic-calming treatments on the major road through small Iowa communities using either single-measure low-cost or gateway treatments. The project was partially funded by the Iowa Highway Research Board (IHRB). The focus of the IHRB portion was to evaluate single-measure, low-cost, traffic-calming measures that are appropriate to major roads through small communities. The research evaluated the use of two gateway treatments in Union and Roland; five single-measure treatments (speed table, on pavement "SLOW" markings, a driver speed feedback sign, tubular markers, and on-pavement entrance treatments) were evaluated in Gilbert, Slater, and Dexter.
