Guide to Neighbourhood Traffic Calming (posted 10-11-01)
Developed in conjunction with the Canadian Institute of Transportation
Engineers, this guide helps practitioners to understand traffic calming
principles and applications, and to achieve an appropriate level of standardization
while minimizing liability and maximizing safety.
of Variable Speed Limit Applications (posted 10-11-01)
Variable Speed Limit (VSL) systems utilize traffic speed and volume detection
and weather and road surface condition information to determine and display
appropriate travel speeds to drivers. Domestic and foreign examples of
VSL are available.

of Speed Zoning Practices (posted 10-11-01)
This report is based on a study by ITE Traffic Engineering Council Technical
Committee TENC-97-12. The objective was to identify and summarize the
speed zoning practices used by agencies in the United States. (The report
is available for purchase through the ITE Bookstore website).
Calming: State of the Practice (posted 10-11-01)
This report contains a synthesis of traffic calming experiences to date
in the United States and Canada. It includes information on traffic calming
in residential areas and in areas where high-speed rural highways transition
into rural communities.
Calming Seminar Instructional Material (posted 10-11-01)
ITE and FHWA developed a one-day seminar for transportation professionals
on traffic calming. The seminar materials are intended for use by professionals
interested in educating others on the subject. This traffic calming website
allows you to view the slide show on your Web browser or download the
full PowerPoint presentation along with the instructor's notes for individual
