Calming traffic, improving safety

PleasantStreets_logo-1.jpg

Pleasant Streets is Pleasant Ridge’s Traffic Committee. We’re  a group of community volunteers working to improve traffic concerns in Pleasant Ridge. We increase awareness of basic rights and responsibilities on the roadway to encourage a culture of common courtesy and respect, and to improve traffic safety for everyone.

 

Our goal is to:

 

  • Serve as a PR community forum concerning safe access for motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, and runners

  • Educate and inform the PR community about safety

  • Encourage safe cycling, walking and running events in the area

  • Report and recommend improvements to traffic, cyclist, pedestrian, and runner issues to the Pleasant Ridge Community Council

 

Monthly meetings are held on Wednesdays or Sundays. If you would like to join the committee or attend a meeting, please join our Facebook page: Pleasant Streets

Pleasant Streets Pace Car Pledge

Pleasant Streets Pace Car Stickers-01.png

The Pleasant Ridge Community Council asks drivers to be part of the solution to make our neighborhood streets safer for pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers and all who are out and about engaging in daily life.

 

Drivers sign a pledge to drive within the speed limit, drive courteously, yield to pedestrians and be mindful of bicyclists and others on the street. Those taking the pledge can also choose to display the Pleasant Streets sticker on their vehicles. It’s a citizens-in-action movement, with citizens leading by example, helping to calm traffic and raise awareness of the need for livable streets.

 

A Pleasant Streets Driver recognizes that quality of life for all residents is enhanced when responsible drivers adhere to the laws and safe driving practices on every street in our neighborhoods. A Pleasant Streets Driver also serves as an example so that the others will respect safety on our streets.

Please proudly display the Pleasant Streets sticker on a window, bumper or body of the rear of your vehicle.

How to become a Pace Car

You can take the pledge online and will receive your free Pleasant Streets sticker in the mail.

Take the pledge to:

  • Be aware of my speed and observe the speed limit;

  • Slow down near schools and other areas such as playgrounds, parks, residential streets where children are present

  • Always yield to pedestrians crossing the street

  • Come to a complete stop at stop signs and then look carefully before proceeding

  • Be courteous to bicyclists and other road users

  • Not tailgate

  • Not block walkways, bike lanes, or driveways when parking

  • Consider using alternate means of transportation and consolidate car trips to lessen traffic on residential streets

  • Display the Pleasant Streets Bumper Sticker on my vehicle so other drivers know why I am driving courteously and at a safe speed

  • Encourage others to sign the pledge. The more Pleasant Streets drivers, the safer our streets will become.
