Moving Beyond the Automobile: Traffic Calming

The most recent video in the Streetfilms series called Moving Beyond the Automobile is all about traffic calming. Traffic calming involves a variety of methods for slowing down traffic to improve safety for all transportation mode users. Traffic calming methods include changing infrastructure to force changes on the road (ie. slowing traffic down, increasing visibility of other mode users, etc.). As one interviewee in the video points out, “Signs don’t do the job,” so traffic calming methods are an important way to increase safety and visibility for everyone.
