Starting a pace car program in your school community is a piece of cake: PArents sign the Pace Car Supporters Pledge and proudly display the official Pace Car emblems on their cars. By signing the pledge, they agree to drive the posted speed limit. Their cars become a "mobile speed bump" slowing speeding traffic behind them. Traffic is not only calmed on one street, but throughout a neighbourhood. Drivers also agree to be more aware of, and courteous to, other road users, especially pedestrians and cyclists.
