Thursday October 29th canceled for weather

We will start scheduling again as weather clears up in 2021

Social distancing protocols will be followed at this event.

Distancing and the wearing of masks is required.

About this event:

Neighbors, and the Springfield Police Department will join together to educate motorists and enforce traffic safety in the area of Page Blvd. and Bircham Street. Volunteers will hold Check Your Speed Signs along the street to encourage drivers to observe the speed limit. Police will perform lidar speed check after the Check Your Speed Signs to help enforce the speed limit.

What is the purpose of Check Your Speed:

Often, drivers are unaware of their speed or of the impact their speed has on the residents they are passing. This type of real-time awareness encourages speeding motorists to slow down. Passing motorists who continue to travel above the speed limit are stopped by the Police.

We can always use more help. What will volunteers be doing? Neighborhood volunteers will hold poster board Check Your Speed signs along the street. While Springfield Police Traffic Detail conducts radar speed enforcement. We appreciate every bit of help we can get.
