Traffic Calming Program

A Message From Our Team

Dear American Canyon Community,

Traffic calming and safety is a high priority for all of us. Through the City of American Canyon's Traffic Calming Program(PDF, 3MB), we aim to take a data-driven approach to focus infrastructure design, public education, and enforcement efforts around the goal of zero traffic fatalities or severe injuries. The Program provides a framework for the community to submit concerns for problem areas to our Team for evaluation, classifies the appropriate traffic calming measures to incorporate on our streets and roadways, and affords criteria to assess the magnitude of the need and probable effectiveness of an installation.

We will continue to build upon the Program's foundation through the vastly treasured spirit of American Canyon's community members, where everyone is welcome, and we come together to face challenges.

The collective safety of our roadways depends on the individual choices we all make. We encourage you to take the We ❤ Safe Streets Pledge and promote it to your family and neighbors.

As a community, each of us contributes to the success of ensuring American Canyon remains the best place to live, work, and play safely. On behalf of our Traffic Working Group, thank you for doing your part in creating a culture of safety in our community.

We ❤ Safe Streets Pledge

As a community, each of us contributes to the success of ensuring American Canyon remains the best place to live, work, and play safely. The collective safety of our roadways depends on the individual choices we all make. We encourage you to take the We ❤ Safe Streets Pledge below and promote it to your family and neighbors.

By taking the Pledge you will become a member of the Safe Streets Ambassador Team. You will receive updates and volunteer opportunities related to traffic calming in American Canyon.

take the we heart safe streets pledge. By taking this pledge I am doing my part to make our neighborhood streets safer and friendlier for all. I will drive within the posted speed limit or slower depending on current conditions. I will plan to leave early enough so I don't have to rush to be on time. I will not give in to the impatience of others to drive above the speed limit. I will only talk on my phone while driving when the call is urgent and the call is hands-free. I will not text or use any other handheld devices when driving. I will treat people who are walking and bicycling with respect and share the road safely with them. I will display the Safe Driving Pledge decal on my vehicle and encourage others to take this pledge.
