About This Blog
Radar speed signs, speed bumps, crosswalks, radar cameras…when it comes to traffic calming options there are a lot of choices – and even more opinions. While some cities are installing new devices at an enormous pace, others are ripping them. There are organizations that have cropped up to support traffic calming measures and others chartered to oppose them.
The purpose of this blog is to provide an open and informed forum for discussion on traffic and pedestrian safety-related topics. There is a lot of information out there; a lot of research and a lot of rumors; a lot of facts, and a lot of hype. Hopefully this site will help sort it all out.
As a growing number of communities across the United States consider traffic calming measures, this blog is intended to serve as a resource of facts, opinions and experiences from those affected.
