Traffic Calming

Traffic-calmed neighbourhood road sign design

Traffic calming is intended to improve the enjoyment and pedestrian friendliness of the neighbourhood under review by reducing traffic speed and volume on a group of streets within a specific geographical area and by implementing proven methods to reduce identified problems.

To place a traffic calming request with the Transportation Planning Department, please call 311 or contact by email. You will receive a response once your request has been reviewed; due to volume, this process could take up to one year.

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.
