Slow Down!

Fall 2017 Campaign
September 5 - 15

For more information contact:Communications Team

Cranberry neighborhoods join together bi-annually to encourage drivers to adhere to the posted 25-miles per hour speed limit, as well as all posted speed limits throughout the Township.

More neighborhoods take part each year
with hundreds of signs posted and distributed in the participating areas, along with mobile speed-reading trailers, traffic counter tubes, and increased police presence. The campaign is open to HOAs and neighborhoods without HOAs (with at least 5 participating neighbors).

Operating at a safe speed and exercising good judgment on the roads, sidewalks, trails, and parking lots is everyone's responsibility! Learn about CycleCT and sharing the road, among cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.

The Cranberry Township "Slow Down" project is patterned after the Nebraska-based nonprofit “Keep Kids Alive, Drive 25." 

Slow Down Campaign sponsors: RJ Community Development and CTCC
