Building upon the body of knowledge developed by the Ewing and Brown over the last 10 years, this single-source reference presents a how-to process for the successful implementation of a traffic-calming program. More than any previous manual, this book provides practical guidance on establishing an effective program, deciding which traffic-calming device to choose for a given problem, and properly designing a selected device to achieve a desired outcome. Numerous case studies from across the country suggest the most effective measures in various circumstances, and hundreds of color photographs illustrate specific traffic-calming treatments.
