Neighbourhood traffic issues such as high traffic volumes, shortcuts and speeding are a growing concern for many residents. The City of Maple Ridge is committed to providing effective traffic management plans and has prepared a Traffic Calming Policy to address neighbourhood traffic management.
The Traffic Calming Policy supports educational enforcement and some physical measures to address traffic issues. The program focus is to improve neighbourhood safety, comfort and livability while maintaining necessary levels of traffic circulation and emergency access. It encompasses a broad array of traffic education, enforcement and engineering techniques to slow and disperse or reroute traffic.
The Traffic Calming Policy was adopted by Council December 10, 2019.
