The Sudbury Road Safety Committee, a partnership of the City of Greater Sudbury, the Greater Sudbury Police Service, the Sudbury & District Health Unit, and the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, has created a new program to remind motorists to slow down and watch for pedestrians in residential neighbourhoods.
The Road Safety Community Sign Program makes lawn signs available for loan free of charge to residential neighbourhoods for up to 30 days at a time. Signs warn motorists to watch for vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists, children, seniors and persons with disabilities or those who use mobility devices.
To maximize the impact of this sign program, the Sudbury Road Safety Committee is seeking individuals to serve as community leads to coordinate the display of lawn signs in their respective neighbourhoods. Signs will be distributed first come, first served. The Committee will make every effort to ensure that all neighbourhoods wishing to participate will have an opportunity to do so.
Application forms for Community Leads are available online at www.greatersudbury.ca/safetysigns and at all branches of the Greater Sudbury Public Library.
