One of the City of San Antonio's goals is to improve mobility safety across all modes of travel in a way that fits in a given neighborhood environment. This Traffic Calming Handbook is aimed at improving neighborhood quality of life by providing traffic calming options on residential streets. Traffic calming refers to improving street features to reduce the negative effects of speeding and cut-through traffic while enhancing safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. These efforts are typically aimed at reducing vehicle speeds and/or the volume of non-local traffic in residential areas.
