Traffic Calming Policy

Newtown Township has established a policy by which residents can learn about and, if appropriate, request traffic calming measures in their neighborhood.  Below you will find the policy itself, the Pennsylvania Traffic Calming Handbook and the two request forms which can be used when requesting potential traffic calming measures be studied.  You are encouraged to read and understand the information in the policy before requesting a meeting, as the installation of traffic calming is more complicated that simply installing a speed hump.  The Newtown Township Police Department coordinates the investigations and effort, with assistance from Public Works and Township Administrative Staff.  A completed request for may be sent to the Chief of Police - a link to their webpage with contact information is HERE.
