Chicanes

Description

  Chicanes
Street designed to slow traffic by requiring motorists to follow a one-lane serpentine route. Typically, a chicane uses three or more horizontal deflections on alternating sides of the street. The design slows traffic and elicits a cautious response from motorists.

Chicanes:
  • Reduces vehicle speeds
  • Eliminates straight site line
  • Potential to add more landscaping to a street
