SLOW DOWN REDMOND - Media Event
10:00 a.m., Monday, October 3, 2016
John Tuck Elementary
The City of Redmond and the Redmond School District will host a speeding and traffic safety awareness press conference where they will urge drivers to slow down, obey speed limits, and look out for children.
The Redmond Police will be on hand to demonstrate some of the tools and technology that are using to enforce speed limits and track streets and school zones where speeding is a concern.
SLOW DOWN REDMOND CAMPAIGN:
500 of these signs will distributed via local elementary schools, Redmond City Hall and the Police Dept. to urge drivers take a step back and think about the safety of others as you drive down city streets and through neighborhoods. The signs are FREE, courtesy of the Redmond Public Works Department, and residents are encouraged to post the yard signs in their neighborhoods.
The City is doing more than just propping up signs to encourage drivers to be more careful; we are also incorporating new tools and technology to monitor speeds and help enforce speeding laws. Driving 20 mph over the speed limit earns you a fine of $160; 21 mph means a $260 ticket and these amounts double if it occurs in school zone.
