speeding, traffic speed, traffic speed reduction

By Mike Spack, PE, PTOE

We recently completed our annual MikeOnTraffic reader survey. In the survey we asked readers what their biggest challenge is, and our readers didn’t hold back! We received a wide range of challenges that transportation engineers face daily. Over the next several months we are going to post resources for our readers around these challenges to help you in your professional lives.

Among the most commonly sited challenge was dealing with citizens regarding speeding issues. I have assembled some of our most read articles on traffic calming to help you get started evaluating traffic calming options.

Add a comment below on your favorite traffic calming device or technique, and I may include your ideas in an upcoming post.

Looking for more great ways to deal with traffic calming and other citizen requests?
