Make the commitment to be part of the solution. All you have to do is make a personal commitment to yourself and your neighbors that you’re going to stay aware of safety as you drive. To help reinforce your personal commitment, we suggest you place one of these stickers on your car. If you’re a parent at Frank Zeek we can give it to you for free, otherwise we hope you’ll make at least a $3 donation to Walk & Bike Mendocino to cover our costs. Call 467-3217 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your sticker today.
*These genius stickers can be easily removed without leaving a residue.
Why Go Slow, Mendo? Because slower traffic speeds make safer more inviting neighborhoods. Because we all want to feel safe in our front yards. Because we want the small town atmosphere that is destroyed by racing cars. Because we want our kids to be able to play in the street and walk or bike to school. Because we want to stop and talk to our neighbors and be able to hear them without having to wait for the roar of passing cars to temporarily stop
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can adopt traffic calming measures and work with one another to learn new habits. Thirty years ago, drunk driving was common. A group of parents formed Mothers Against Drunk Driving and established a new social norm wherein driving under the influence is not OK. We can do the same with traffic speeds. We hope you’ll join the conversation.
