If your neighborhood is experiencing traffic problems, such as cars speeding down residential streets or using them as shortcuts between major thoroughfares, the city has a program to help. The Residential Traffic Management Program takes a graduated, three-phase approach to help control speeding on Carlsbad residential streets, beginning with less intrusive measures and works through a progression of steps to achieve the program's goals.
Phase one includes enforcement, education and signs. If those don't solve the problem,
Phase two includes residential stop signs, speed cushions and speed tables, if not effective,
Phase three features traditional traffic calming to narrow the roadway, turn restrictions, traffic circles and other more costly measures.
