Less Pedal to the Metal Please

nto green (rs)2Everyone wants to live on a safe street. You know, a street where drivers cautiously travel past homes as opposed to flying by like jets.  SDOT is concerned about safety too.  Our Neighborhood Traffic Operations program uses several tools to help keep speeds low.  Residents that participate in our Traffic Calming Program work in partnership with SDOT to implement various tools intended to modify the behavior of drivers.  One of the newest tools is the awareness yard sign that feature attention-getting colors and messages like the example pictured above.  The next time you drive on our city’s neighborhood streets, make sure you’re doing so safely and respectfully.
