Traffic Calming Keeping Your Neighborhood Safe

One of the concerns residents bring to ACHD's attention is related to speeding motor vehicles in their neighborhood. They are concerned about the safety of their children, their pets and potential damage to property.

ACHD has performed numerous speed studies in residential areas and found in many cases, excessive speeding stems mostly from drivers that live in the neighborhood. By simply raising awareness of the issue, drivers in the neighborhood may adjust their driving and decrease their speeds.
