Slow Down!

2017 Slow Down Campaign
May 29 - June 10 and September 5 - 19

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 are participating in this year's campaign
with hundreds of signs posted and distributed in the participating areas, along with mobile speed-reading trailers, traffic counter tubes, and increased police presence. This campaign is open to HOAs and neighborhoods without HOAs (with at least 5 participating neighbors).

Slow Down Campaign sponsors: RJ Community Development and CTCC

Let's make traffic safety a top priority

  • Speeding occurs everywhere
  • Speeding extends the distance necessary to stop a vehicle.
  • At 20 mph: stopping distance needed- 69 ft. 
  • At 40 mph: the distance needed is 189 ft.
  • Sources: USDOT, NHSTA

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."
