Thanks to our sponsors American Family Insurance and AAA Wisconsin, Safe Communities is able to provide slow down yard signs to neighborhoods (both formal associations and informal groups of neighbors), law enforcement agencies, and individuals, free of charge.
It is a campaign to make our streets safer by posting “slow down” yard signs, stepping up speed enforcement, staffing speed boards, and organizing other neighborhood and community activities to reduce speeding. Slow Down Yard Signs are available year-round at participating law enforcement agencies, American Family Insurance agents and AAA Wisconsin locations.
Effective campaigns have been held for several years throughout the Madison and Dane County area. You can take action in your neighborhood by following some of the simple ideas and suggestions offered below, and downloading the related documents to learn more about organizing a Slow Down Campaign, how to effectively place signs, notify neighbors and the media, and more!
