The City of Las Cruces has implemented a Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program (NTCP) to address neighborhood concerns. Traffic calming is an attempt to slow or reduce traffic on residential streets whether the speeding is caused by residents or cut-through traffic. The program involves a joint effort between the residents and the city in an effort to improve traffic safety in their neighborhoods. The most common concerns expressed to the city is about speeding traffic in residential neighborhoods.
