- Centre line flex stakes: make the roadway appear narrower, naturally encouraging drivers to stay in the proper lane and reduce speed. Used alone, this measure can increase compliance by up to 7.3%. Used in conjunction with side delineators (like on Coronation Avenue), compliance can increase by up to 23%
- Speed display boards: show drivers the speed at which they are travelling, reminding them to slow down
- Speed pavement markings and school zone markings: grab the attention of drivers and remind them to correct their behaviour. Have increased compliance by up to 10.8%
- Permanent “Slow down for us” signs: grab the attention of drivers and remind them to correct their behaviour. Have increased compliance by up to 6.4%
- A relatively new measure available to us is the 3D speed hump, like the one on Othello. Similar to a speed pavement marking, it grabs the attention of passing vehicles and serves as a reminder to slow down. These markings may increase compliance by up to 10%
In Alta Vista, the locations of TTC measures are always chosen based on resident input and feedback. Every single measure you see around Alta Vista started with a request or a concern from a resident. No one knows your street better than you do, that is why I need your help determining where TTC measures are needed. If you live on or know of a street that may be in need of traffic calming, please call or email my office by January 30th to help us compile our list of spring measures.
