In this hour-long fireside chat, part of CHNET-Works! series of online discussions, Olivier Bellefleur and François Gagnon introduced Urban Traffic Calming and Health: A Literature Review.

Their discussion focused on four determinants of health affected by traffic-calming interventions:

● The number and severity of road collisions,
● Air quality,
● Environmental noise,
● Physical activity associated with active transportation. 

As well, they considered how traffic calming can reduce health inequalities.
