Traffic Calming

The Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program (NTCP) is designed to provide consistent, citywide policies to neighborhood traffic management and to ensure equitable and effective solutions to a variety of traffic concerns expressed by local residents.

  • In many cases driver behavior – in the form of speeding or cut-through traffic – is the root cause of these complaints.
  • Traditionally police enforcement has been successful in deterring speeding traffic.
  • There is a high demand for enforcement all over the City and it is not efficient to conduct enforcement on low volume residential streets.
  • Enforcement often works on a temporary basis, but there is a need for more permanent measures to reduce the speed of vehicles and discourage cut-through traffic on low volume residential streets.
