    Shared driveways

    I'm in the process of revamping our site plan regulations and was wondering if anyone had any good examples of ordinances or regulations that require shared driveways/access to improve access management on heavily traveled roads.

    Any suggestions or examples are greatly appreciated!

    One of the sessions at APA last spring dealt with access management. Florida is doing quite a bit of work in this area. Check out the Orlando City Code, and I'm sure there are others.

    I just checked that link. After you get there, you have to go to Chapter 61.

    Good Luck,

    Also worth checking is the Center for Urban Transportation Research. Florida based, but relevant for most of us:
