“Neighbors Drive 25” Pedestrian Safety, Traffic Awareness Campaign

Have you spotted the “Neighbors Drive 25” signs in your neighborhood? These bright yellow signs remind motorists to follow the rules of the road and drive 25 mph in residential areas.

With warmer weather approaching, more children and pedestrians will be walking on Spokane streets. The City of Spokane reminds motorists to pay more attention to their speed in residential areas with our pedestrian and traffic safety campaign “Neighbors Drive 25.”

By following the rules of the road, we can prevent most collisions.

  • Motorists: Follow the rules of the road. Stop for pedestrians, especially children, in marked or unmarked crosswalks. Drive 20 in school zones, 25 on residential streets, and 30 on arterial streets, unless otherwise posted.
  • Pedestrians: Cross the street on a “Walk” signal. If there isn’t a signal look left, right, and left again before crossing at crosswalks or intersections.

Join Council Member Karen Stratton; Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Executive Director Patrick Striker; Pedestrian, Traffic and Transportation (PeTT) Committee Chair Randy McGlenn, and staff from the Office of Neighborhood Services on Thursday, March 24, at 9:30 a.m. at Spokane Neva-Wood C.O.P.S. Shop, 4750 N. Addison St.

Attendees can pick up a yard sign to display in their yard. After the event, signs will be available at all Spokane COPS Shops (call ahead for hours) or can be picked up from your Neighborhood Council. Not sure what neighborhood you live in? Visit our neighborhoods website to learn more.

These signs were made possible through Traffic Calming funds.
