We need your input.

Your neighborhood was selected for a pilot study (or experiment) to test the impacts of a ‘Walking District’ designation. As part of this designation, your neighborhood received lower posted speed limits (20 or 25 mph versus 30 or 35 mph), speed limits painted on the roadway, and the installation of special ‘Walking District’ signs at your neighborhood’s boundaries. The Metro Nashville Police Department is a partner in the Walking District Pilot and has provided enforcement of the new lower speed limits. 

Please help us understand how these measures impacted the safety and comfort of your street and the greater neighborhood. Your responses will remain anonymous. The survey will only take approximately 10 minutes. Thank you for your participation as your feedback is important. 

What is Traffic Calming?
Traffic calming refers to a wide range of techniques geared towards improving safety for all roadway users, reducing negative impacts of vehicular traffic on neighborhoods, and encouraging more walking and biking. These techniques include a combination of education, engineering, and police enforcement. Examples of engineering devices, methods, and techniques include lane restriping changes, signage, speed limit pavement markings, the addition of white edgelines, portable and permanent speed radar signs, traffic circles, and speed cushions.
