Some local authorities can install traffic calming measures to improve road safety. These may include road humps, chicanes, traffic islands etc. The Local Authority will decide whether a road needs traffic calming and, if so, which measures are most suitable. The specific traffic problem will dictate the location, type and size of traffic calming measures.
These are usually chosen after discussion with road safety officers, local residents and the emergency services; they may conduct an independent study to assess the problem.
