Applications are due by 5:00pm on August 1, 2013!
If you would like more information about how the application process works, read on:
Applications are required to identify locations where there are speeding concerns, and to establish community support for speed humps or other traffic calming measures. For example, if a block is selected for traffic calming, residents on that block will be given the opportunity to vote on whether or not they would like to have a speed hump. Signatures are required as part of the application to ensure that there will be community support for traffic calming, before the SFMTA begins the planning process.
For a block to be considered for residential traffic calming, three main criteria must be met.
The SFMTA will measure speeds once applications are submitted. However, before you apply, you can also take a look at the resources below to see if your street may be unlikely to qualify.
Streets with the following characteristics are not likely to be eligible residential streets:
If your street is eligible and has speeding, the following features could increase the ranking of your street:
Speed humps are highly effective at reducing speeds, and are less resource intensive than less effective tools like traffic islands, corner extensions, and chicanes. If you apply for the traffic calming program, your street will first be evaluated for speed humps and only considered for other measures if speed humps are infeasible.
If you are concerned about safety an intersection, rather than speeds mid-block, traffic calming may not be the appropriate solution. For instance if your primary concerns are about STOP signs, yielding, or visibility, please contact the Sustainable Streets Division online using the 311 Self Service portal or call the San Francisco 311 Customer Service Center.
