"Slow Speed" Campaign Defined

From America Walks:
America Walks has outlined our campaign to reduce automobile speeds in America. We know that people in communities across America have grave concerns about speeding in their neighborhood, and they are right to have this worry as over 20 MPH speeds exponentially increase injuries and fatalities among those struck by vehicles.

America Walks is building partnerships and seeking funding to support our effort to ensure slow speeds in every community. Our action plan includes:

Develop a clearinghouse of information such as research, presentations, and technical support;

Partner with communities across the nation to pilot campaigns to reduce speed and develop a handbook of best practices to reduce speeds in your community; and

Advocate to revise standards that guide speed limits and work to expand compliance tools.

If you are interested in becoming a partner in this effort, please contact Scott Bricker, Director, America Walks.
