Traffic Calming Zones

Traffic calming measures are used to slow down traffic in order to make the road safer for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians.

Reduce speed when approaching these road humps, chicanes and narrowing in the road. Allow cyclist and motorcyclists to pass through traffic-calming measures. Drive slowly throughout a traffic-calming zone.

If directed by a traffic sign give way to oncoming traffic. Don’t overtake moving vehicles in a traffic-calming zone.
