The two primary goals of traffic calming are to enhance safety by reducing the potential for and lessening the consequences of conflicts between road users, and preserve neighbourhood livability by reducing the negative impacts of short-cutting or speeding traffic.
The establishment of a Traffic Calming Policy provides procedures to receive and evaluate requests for traffic calming within the City under guiding principles that will influence the development of neighbourhood plans.
