What is traffic calming?
Traffic calming is the combination of physical features constructed in the roadway that reduce the negative effects of motor vehicle use by altering driver behavior and improving conditions for non-motorized street users. In the City of Boca Raton, a formal Traffic Calming Policy was adopted on February 27, 2001 that establishes guidelines for a neighborhood wishing to participate in the City's Traffic Calming Program. An "Enhanced Speed Hump" traffic calming feature is available for funding by the city through the Program. Call (561) 416-3374 for more information or for a copy of the Policy.
