Slow Down in our Town is a speed reduction campaign in partnership between neighborhood residents and local law enforcement, working together to coordinate placement of lawn signs in a targeted neighborhood. The signs are moved around the neighborhood periodically because studies show that signs permanently erected on streets become so commonplace that motorists often ignore them. In addition, awareness training is provided to the participating residents and local enforcement.
