What is Traffic Calming? Are Bollards Effective?

WHAT IS TRAFFIC CALMING? – “Traffic calming uses physical design and other measures to improve safety for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists. It aims to encourage safer, more responsible driving and potentially reduce traffic flow.”

One of the most common products used to calm traffic are bollards, both permanent and portable. We offer both, but decided to focus this blog article on the moveable bollards as they allow for flexible traffic calming and are great for stadiums, concert venues and other high traffic areas that require changing traffic delineation. Large planters are also commonly used to calm traffic in busy pedestrian areas.

Dawn Enterprises manufactures moveable bollards which are used in hundreds of applications across various different industries. These portable bollards are particularly useful for streetscape changes and visual cues. Dawn bollards are installed at construction sites, parking garages and embassies all over the world.
