City of Colorado Springs / Traffic Engineering / Traffic Operations / Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) / Neighborhood Options

OPTIONS FOR NEIGHBORHOODS CONCERNED ABOUT TRAFFIC SAFETY

If your neighborhood is experiencing frequent reported traffic accidents based on the current traffic, you can still contact the City's Traffic Engineering division to request a review of the situation - (719) 385-5908 or trafeng@springsgov.com. 

However, please consider one of the following options if your neighborhood traffic safety concerns are primarily related to:

  • Speeding,
  • Poor driving behaviors,
  • Noise issues (loud car stereos, mufflers, etc.), and/or
  • Other non-accident related complaints 

Work with your Neighborhood or Homeowners Association

Neighborhoods with active neighborhood associations or homeowners associations could consider using any routine neighborhood communications (newsletter, emails) to politely remind neighborhood residents to travel the speed limit, not block sidewalks when parking cars, turn down car stereos, keep sidewalks clear of snow/ice and encroachments from trees and other landscaping, etc., whatever the safety issues of concern are within the neighborhood.

Traffic Enforcement

Citizens and neighborhood/homeowners associations can contact the Colorado Springs Police Department to request neighborhood traffic enforcement by calling (719) 482-7143.  If you reach a CSPD voicemail, please leave the following information: your name, address, phone number(s), email (if available), the street(s) you are concerned about, and what the traffic safety concern(s) is.  If there is a particular time(s) of the day the problem is worse, please note this in your message.

Because the Police Department's traffic enforcement resources are very limited, neighborhoods can opt to pay for police overtime for targeted enforcement in their neighborhoods.  If your neighborhood is interested in this option, please contact the CSPD Enforcement Hotline at (719) 482-7143 and leave a message to that effect.

Digital Radar Speed Trailers / Signs

There are two types of digital radar speed signs - one type is mobile (trailer-mounted) and is managed by the Colorado Springs Police Department; the other type is semi- permanent (pole mounted) and is managed by the Traffic Engineering division.

Speed Trailer

Mobile Speed Trailer - If you are interested in getting one of the Mobile Speed Trailers placed on your street, please contact the Colorado Springs Police Department at (719) 482-7143 to request to be placed on the rotation list for the trailer.  If you reach a CSPD voicemail, please leave the following information: your name, address, phone number(s), email address (if available), and the street(s) you would like the speed trailer installed on.  There are a very limited number of mobile speed trailers; they are rotated around the City on a first come-first serve basis. 

Speed Sign

Semi-permanent Speed Display Signs - these signs are installed for longer periods of time and typically on multi-lane streets, near schools and/or areas with a history of speed-related crashes.  Traffic Engineering will be posting information on the semi-permanent digital speed signs and their placement and use policy on the City's web site in the near future - please check back.
