Webinar transcription

 My name is Andrew Larter.

I'm a senior transportation planner here at Urban SDK. My background is in transportation engineering. I spent a number of years as a consultant and actually as a customer of Urban SDK as well. I've been in many of your shoes before when it comes to topics like traffic calming.

So, a majority of our customers here at Urban SDK tends to use our platform to help with their traffic calming programs, and a couple of the more recent examples that we've seen how our customers use our platform is to determine whether a roadway is eligible for traffic calming and to justify the need for a speed table.

That is to say breaking out speeds by time of day, by day, week, and so on to really hone in and zero in on how traffic calming might be useful or might be effective for your community. We're here today to show you how Urban SDK can and really should be an essential part of your traffic calming program.

Now this is going to include using your account to quickly diagnose a road and see if there are any troubling segments for traffic calming. Using the analysis in your account to determine the best approach for calming traffic as well as your local context to help determine that approach. And of course saving the report so you can share these findings with stakeholders in your organization or within your community.

Now our goal today is to be able to use what we've covered here to streamline some of the more tedious parts of your traffic calming program. So with that being said, we're going to dive right in and begin.
