Ladybugs and Chicanes

SDOT’s Neighborhood Traffic Program helps ensure safe traffic operations on our residential streets.  Residents often get involved in the program when they have concerns about speeding, high traffic volumes, or cut-through traffic issues on their street.  Above all, people get involved because they want to feel safe while walking along or across the street. 

Check out this excellent video about traffic calming produced by our friends over at the Seattle Channel.  The clip provides excellent insight into the principals of traffic calming as it follows the story of two Beacon Hill families concerned about safety on their street.  Enjoy!
