The City of Calgary Traffic Calming Policy identifies processes for responding to traffic issues so that communities with the most severe traffic issues will be dealt with on a priority basis. A number of communities have requested studies and are on The Community Traffic Study Evaluation List.
Community traffic studies aim to reduce the negative impacts of traffic in neighbourhoods. The main objective is to influence driver behaviour through the implementation of a traffic management plan and traffic calming measures.
The focus of traffic calming is to address existing and measurable traffic problems. Examples include speeding problems, short-cutting traffic through neighbourhood streets, and pedestrian and cyclist issues. The location of traffic calming measures is influenced by the needs of emergency response services, along with other design considerations. Calming measures are typically installed on local and collector streets only and do not necessarily reduce traffic volumes.
