Maybe I’m just a word nerd, but the expression “traffic calmed neighbourhood“ reads to me as “neighbourhood calmed by traffic”, which makes no sense. It should be “calmed traffic neighbourhood”.

And while “traffic calming” fixes the subject of the sentence, traffic is not a living thing capable of emotion, so calming it is just weird. ”Reduced traffic” or “slowed traffic” would be more to the point.

That’s all I got.
