NJLTAP – Traffic Calming (Webinar)

  • October 18, 2023October 19, 2023
  • 9:00 am–12:00 pm

Course Description:

Do you need to know when, where, and how to place things such as speed bumps or signage to slow down traffic on your local roadways? Traffic calming uses physical design and other measures to improve safety for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.

This course introduces how a municipality can establish a traffic engineered calming program for their roadways to increase safety and accessibility. Traffic calming is an engineering tool whose purpose is to address excessive traffic speed and/or cut-through traffic on residential. We’ll explore the definition of traffic calming and review the various types of traffic calming devices. The class discussion will outline both potential positive and negative impacts on a neighborhood and reviews a sample traffic calming program. During this workshop, related issues, such as impacts of traffic calming devices on liability, roadway maintenance, and emergency service will be discussed. Participants perform case studies, applying traffic calming measures to address traffic concerns.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the various traffic calming measures and the traffic situations they apply to
  2. Identify traffic calming impacts
  3. Identify legal authority and liability of installing engineered traffic calming measures

Intended Audience:

The intended audience is anyone who is responsible for receiving complaints or inquiries about speeding and/or cut-through traffic issues. This includes engineers, public works superintendents, municipal managers, planners, etc. Law enforcement and elected officials may also benefit from this course.
