Data collected from a pilot program conducted in 2022 showed that on average speeds were 6 mph lower when speed tables were installed. The tables were most effective when more than one table was placed on the same street. Over 1300 online surveys were received with over 50% of those surveyed indicating they supported traffic calming.
Mayor Dan Horrigan said, "Speeding in residential areas is one of the most common concerns we hear from Akron residents. Last year's traffic calming program proved itself to be an effective tool to curb speeding and help make our neighborhoods safer for pedestrians and motorists alike. This year's program will also be bolstered by additional traffic calming devices in the form of solar speed limit signs which will be installed later this summer."
The streets and wards targeted for speed table installations include: Crosby Street (2) and Maple Street (1) in Ward 1 – these are both reinstallations, Evans Avenue (2) in Ward 2, S. Rhodes Avenue (2) in Ward 3, Storer Avenue (2) in Ward 4, Baird Street (2) in Ward 5, Benton Street (2) in Ward 6, Glenmount Avenue (2) in Ward 7, Ridgewood Road (2) in Ward 8, Clearview Avenue (2) in Ward 9 and Caddo Avenue (2) in Ward 10. Signage will be posted to alert drivers to the speed tables. Residents who live on a street where the tables will be installed will be notified prior to installation.

The City of Akron is taking steps to reduce speeding by installing speed tables across the city beginning June 2021. Data collected from a pilot program conducted last year showed that on average speeds were 6 mph lower when speed tables were installed and that they are most effective when more than one table is placed on the same street. Mayor Dan Horrigan said that last year's traffic calming program proved itself to be an effective tool to curb speeding and help make neighborhoods safer for pedestrians and motorists alike. Solar speed limit signs will also be installed later this summer at locations yet to be determined which will detect passing vehicles' speeds and flash them at drivers as well as record them for data collection purposes. Residents who would like to suggest potential locations for future traffic calming considerations can visit Zencity's link provided by the City of Akron Press Office for further information or contact Chief Communications Officer Stephanie Marsh at 330-375-2754 or via email for any questions or concerns regarding this initiative.
