Traffic calming requests are reviewed in order of priority based on score, not necessarily in the order they are received. Traffic calming requests are scored based on a number of factors, including traffic volumes, traffic speeds, collisions and presence of pedestrian traffic generators. Details on how these scores are calculated can be found in the City of Windsor Traffic Calming Policy.

Traffic Calming Surveys

After traffic volumes and speeds have been reviewed, a one-block area around the location of concern is surveyed to confirm neighborhood support for traffic calming. Information on recent surveys and their outcomes is provided below.

Note: For a request to move forward in the traffic calming review process, support from 25% of the dwelling units and commercial properties in the survey area is required.
