Abstract

To answer the question which is posed as the title of this article, the author uses an analytical approach, aware that this is a very subjective matter and will require extensive pragmatic study for validation. The article relies a great deal on the ideas set forth in 1963 by Professor Colin Buchanan in his study entitled "Traffic in Town, A Study of the Long-Term Problems of Traffic in Urban Areas" (Her Majesty's Stationary Office, London, U.K.). The conclusion reached is that there are possibly three separate thresholds for local residential street traffic environmental quality. These three thresholds are graphically plotted as impact versus flow by exposure and are discussed in greater detail.
