The paper presents an example of evaluation of the traffic impacts on the residential building. Residents noticed numerous damage to the building, which, in their opinion, were caused by the movement of trucks from the nearby transport base of agricultural equipment’s. The control seals have been glued on all cracks of the building and elements close to the road, in order to determine the damages propagation. The building and ground vibrations were established during the study. The vibration accelerations in the frequency function at the selected points of building were measured. Taking into account the dynamic impact scales (DIS), the vibration influences on the building were specified. Measurements of accelerations and vibration velocities inside a building were also conducted in order to determine the harmfulness of vibration in relation to the people. As a result of vibration accelerations test in different places of building, it was found that building is located in the first zone of the DIS, which vibrations are classified as imperceptible by the building. The harmfulness of occurring vibrations to the people staying in a residential building at the analysed road was also not found.
