Local residents have several options to resolve traffic issues in their neighborhoods. The most effective solutions are traffic calming measures; however, residents may also request Police enforcement in their neighborhood. Less effective for controlling speeders, but requested by many residents to address other traffic issues, are crosswalks and stop signs.
Contact the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program Coordinators to request an application for Traffic Calming in your neighborhood or download the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program Request Form.
Intensified enforcement of traffic regulations can calm traffic, generally by reminding drivers of posted speed limits and by enforcing the observance of STOP signs. Contact the Stockton Police Department to request targeted enforcement or visit Police Enforcement.
Stop signs are not traffic calming measures and State and Federal guidelines preclude their use to "slow" vehicles. The function of a Stop sign is to assign right-of-way at intersections, and they are typically installed after a study to determine if warrants, criteria established by the Federal Highway Administration and Cal-Trans, are met.
To request a stop sign or other traffic signs and devices, contact the Public Works Department. To request a stop sign or other traffic signs and devices, please click on Ask Stockton and select the appropriate topic.
Requests for Crosswalks must meet the guidelines as stated in the Pedestrian Safety and Crosswalk Installation Guidelines. Contact the Public Works Department for more information.
