This course introduces an engineering tool whose purpose is to address excessive traffic speed and/or cut-through traffic on residential streets. The course provides information that can help municipalities establish a rational traffic calming program for their roadways.  Detailing information in PennDOT’s Publication 383, Pennsylvania’s Traffic Calming Handbook, the course defines traffic calming, describes various traffic calming devices, outlines potential positive and negative impacts on a neighborhood, and reviews a sample traffic calming program. It also investigates related issues, such as impacts of traffic calming devices on liability, roadway maintenance, and emergency service. Participants perform case studies, applying traffic calming measures to address traffic concerns.
Intended Audience:  Individuals who receive complaints about speeding and cut through traffic and want to respond appropriately to address these problems, including: law enforcement personnel municipal managers, elected officials, planners, roadmasters, and street superintendents. Others who would benefit from this course include: public works employees. Engineers are welcome to attend, but the focus is on the non-engineer.
