In December 2022, ITE published its final recommended practice for “A Guide to Vertical Deflection Speed Reduction Techniques: Planning and Design of Speed Humps, Speed Tables and Other Related Measures.” This guide was prepared to reflect the current state-of-the-practice and provide the user with a broad overview of key considerations for vertical deflection measures as speed reduction techniques including speed humps, speed tables, raised pedestrian crossings, raised intersections, and traffic calming roundabouts. Our guest speaker, Randy McCourt, was a key member on the technical advisory committee that oversaw the production of this document. Join us as he shares his insights about this recently published recommended practice.
