Traffic Calming for Walking & Bicycling
Traffic calming--slowing traffic on streets--can take many forms. While speed humps can be effective, they can also add to increased noise, pollution, and driver anger. In 2012, Partners for Active Living and the Spartanburg Area Transportation Study (SPATS) created this traffic calming guide to educate residents about the options for traffic calming in addition to speed humps. This guide is intended to help raise the conversation about traffic calming.
