Traffic Safety
Drive 25 Program

Drive 25 in residential streets logo

The Drive 25 Program is a cooperative City/Neighborhood-based initiative to reduce speeding on our residential streets. The need for this is clear; speeding is the single greatest traffic complaint received by Traffic Engineering and Police Department for neighborhoods. Many of the violators are driving within their own neighborhoods. The Drive 25 Program addresses the issue by encouraging neighborhood residents to take responsibility for the impact their cars have on the roads they use.

The Drive 25 Program encourages motorists to drive the legal speed limit in their neighborhood and also positively change motorist behavior throughout our community.

Program Goals

pedestrian survival chance depending on vehicle speeds: 95% at 20 m p h, 60% at 30 m p h, 20% at 40 m p h
  • Reduce speeding on streets throughout our community
  • Raise awareness of how individual motorist's behavior impacts the quality of life in their neighborhood and our community
