A chicane is a traffic management device characterised by a reduction of the trafficable width of a road as a result of either a change in kerb & channel alignment or the placement of a traffic island on one or both sides or the road carriageway.

A motorist passing through a chicane is forced to veer right then left, typically reducing their speed to do so.
