As a part of the Safer Roads Ottawa program I am once again offering residents the opportunity to participate in the Slow Down for Us campaign. Slow Down for Us is a temporary signage posting campaign. It is geared towards drawing attention to and educating motorists on the local residential streets to be aware of children at play. It alerts drivers to be more conscious and responsible to obey the speed limits that are put into place. This program receives enforcement support from the Ottawa Police Service accordingly.
Upon my request to have the Stittsville community participate in the Slow Down for Us project, Safer Roads Ottawa has provided my office with signs to be posted for a period of 30 to 60 days on the City easement portion of resident’s property.
The Safer Roads Ottawa Program is a leading partnership between Ottawa Fire Services, Ottawa Paramedic Service, Ottawa Police Service, Ottawa Public Health and the Public Works Department. The Program is committed to preventing or eliminating road deaths and serious injuries for all people in the City of Ottawa, through culture change, community engagement and the development of a sustainable safe transportation environment.
Should you wish to have one of the Slow Down for Us signs and are a Stittsville resident, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my ward office next week on Monday 9-2, Wednesday 3-8, Friday 9-5, or Saturday 9-1.
