Residents of a gated community value a peaceful way of life. A major disruptor of peaceful living is motor vehicle traffic. Although gated neighborhoods champion security and privacy, they can still harbor chaotic traffic during peak hours and when streamlined systems are absent. What are the top sources of traffic within a gated community? Well, it all starts at the community’s front gate.
The Community Gate
A community’s front gate typically sees high activity throughout any one day. Gate guards and community personnel manage all entry and exit activity. They have to keep track of specific organizational tasks, including receiving guests, communicating with residents, and updating the community database. If a guard takes long, has trouble, or is at all distracted while dealing with a resident or guest at the guard gate, traffic can pile up. If a guest is confused or unaware of how to interact with the gate access system, traffic can pile up. Similarly, a singular entry lane can contribute to traffic accumulation.
The Community Street Traffic
Traffic can also stem from vehicle accidents on residential streets within a gated community. Often times, posted speed limits are not enough to ensure drivers obey speed laws and do not drive recklessly, inattentively, or too fast. Some drivers that are maybe too comfortable with certain neighborhoods tend to ignore these speed laws and signage. Careless driving in any neighborhood can lead to traffic accidents – or worse, physical injury.
