Describes features used to slow down traffic.
|traffic_calming||yes||General or unspecified traffic calming device.|
|traffic_calming||bump||A speed bump, speed hump or ramp is a traffic calming feature used to slow traffic. They are also known as a sleeping policeman in British English and Caribbean English and a judder bar in New Zealand English. A speed bump is a bump in the roadway with heights typically ranging between 7.5 and 10 cm. Its length is typically less than or near to 30 cm. They may have cuts and small gaps left and right for cyclists. See.|
|traffic_calming||dip||A "badén"(AR) is a traffic calming feature used to slow traffic, that works for depression. Its dimensions are similar to bump. See.|
|traffic_calming||chicane||An artificial feature creating extra turns in a road, used in motor racing and on streets to slow traffic for safety.|
|traffic_calming||choker||Narrowed road, sometimes signed as pinch points.|
|traffic_calming||cushion||A hump with spaces between or several multiple rectangular humps aligned across the road. This allows emergency vehicles, buses (due to their wider axle) and bicycles to pass through without slowing down. See.|
|traffic_calming||hump||A speed hump (also called a road hump, undulation or speed ramp) is a rounded traffic calming device. Similar to a bump, but longer. Generally, speed humps are about 4 m in length and span the width of the road. The height of humps ranges from 7.5 to 10 cm. See.|
|traffic_calming||island||An island is a small area that temporarily separates two different directions of traffic. See also crossing=island for islands intended for pedestrians crossing the road.|
|traffic_calming||rumble_strip||Multiple very low bumps (few cm at most) spaced few meters apart spanning the entire width of the road. Does not limit speeds as such, but are very noticeable to the driver as they generate noise and shake the car mildly. Not to be confused with the similar device used to alert drivers when they drift from their lane. See.|
|traffic_calming||table||A speed table (or flat top hump) designed as a long speed hump with a flat section in the middle. The flat section is long enough for all wheels of a passenger car to fit on that section simultaneously. Does not slow as much as a hump and is usually used on roads with residential speed limit. See.|
|traffic_calming||mini_bumps||A group of small bumps in any shape, for example a circle, installed as traffic calming device|
