Q2 Traffic Calming Report Shows High Compliance on Most Roads

At Monday’s board of directors meeting, interim Director of Security Mark Ruppel presented the second quarter report on the traffic calming initiative that has been underway since mid-February. The report shows high rates of traffic are in compliance or low risk with the new speed limits: 99% on the Kiawah Island Parkway and 97% on Governors Drive.

An exception is Flyway Drive, where just 67% of traffic was in compliance or low risk and 32% in the medium risk category. The speed limit on Flyway Drive was reduced to 20 mph on Feb. 15 of this year. Mark proposed a three-pronged approach to the board to bring more drivers into the compliant/low risk category, including data capturing in the area, electronic speed displays for speed limit signs, and data-driven enforcement in conjunction with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Department.
