TRAFFIC CALMING PROGRAM

Maintaining safe and efficient streets is the policy of the City of Paso Robles.

The Traffic Calming Program [1.6mb/49pp], adopted by the City Council in January 2005, was developed to provide the means to respond to unacceptable motoring behavior in existing neighborhoods and to introduce concepts to curb such issues in new development.

The Program provides the policy framework, tools, and process to put traffic calming into action. The Program is further supported in the 2011 Circulation Element of the General Plan which includes several goals, policies and programs that address traffic calming related issues. The Program includes measures to protect local streets from cut-through traffic; reduce speeding; relieve traffic congestion; provide for vehicle and pedestrian safety; support for livable neighborhoods; address truck traffic; and encourage other modes of traveling.

The Traffic Calming Program is divided into five categories:

  1. Basic warning measures
  2. Speed reduction measures
  3. Volume reduction measures
  4. Congestion relief measures
  5. School Zone Measures

Each of each is described in detail in the Traffic Calming Program.
