If you are fed up with speeding in your neighborhood and are prepared to take action, then you have come to the right place.

Welcome to Slow Down in K-Town - a neighborhood-focused education program that can be led and implemented by each individual neighborhood.

With support from the Office of Neighborhood Empowerment, this program equips you with bumper stickers, yard signs, and an Anti-Speeding Education Campaign Guide crammed with ideas, traffic safety information, and step-by-step suggestions for engaging speedy neighbors and cut-through drivers.

If you would like one of these sloth "Slow Down in K-Town" signs (to the right) for your neighborhood, you could be eligible for up to six free signs.  You need to be actively working with the Office of Neighborhood Empowerment on safety in your neighborhood.  If your neighborhood is or the neighbors on your street are interested in these signs, fill out the application and return it to Hayley Howard at [email protected].
