London-Middlesex is in the Red/Control category of the Provincial Keeping Ontario Safe and Open framework. A number of City facilities have reopened to the public for in-person programs and services.
As part of our commitment to making streets accessible and safe for all, the City uses a variety of traffic calming measures to reduce dangerous driving and allow residents to enjoy their neighbourhoods.
In addition to these measures, the City launched a new area speed limits program, which aims to make our streets safer for all road users by lowering speed limits on roads with high pedestrian and cycling usage.
Examples of traffic calming measures include:
The City’s goal is to ensure all residential roads function as intended within a neighbourhood, and that all users in the neighbourhood feel safe. Our traffic calming practices and procedures are based on over 25 years of experience in engineering roads and educating residents.
To qualify for traffic calming requires passing a number of steps designed to filter out normal traffic and ensure significant community support.
