Langford is aiming to address one of the biggest concerns it hears from residents.
Councillors told staff to continue work on a traffic calming pilot program that would be applied in existing neighbourhoods, based on Transportation Association of Canada guidelines.
Council chose to use those existing guidelines rather than have city staff draft their own “Langford-ized” policy, and preferred a pilot program over a permanent one. The policy would also only be applied in existing neighbourhoods and would be reviewed when new neighbourhoods are built.
Coun. Lillian Szpak said residents frequently request speed bumps to tackle vehicles driving above the speed limit.
“When you’re talking about traffic calming you’re really talking about pedestrian safety.”
Langford staff will draft a policy and present it to council sometime in the future.
