Traffic Calming

The Phoenixville Police Department conducts traffic survey studies within our jurisdiction to determine if speed enforcement is needed, to determine if traffic calming measures are required, or to assess the volume of vehicles on a given road at specific times. Survey studies may be requested from elected officials, departmental heads and the public as well.

Studies are usually conducted for seven (7) days to obtain accurate data during weekdays as well as weekends; devices run 24 hours a day at the stationary position.
