Sign up to become a Pace Car driver to help stop speeding on our streets.
Active & Safe Routes to School, with support from the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal and the IWK Health Centre Foundation, offers this grassroots, anti-speeding initiative to Nova Scotia.
The Pace Car program helps stop speeding on neighbourhood streets. It’s simple – drivers in your community sign the Pace Car pledge, and then proudly display the official Pace Car emblems on their cars. By agreeing to drive within the speed limit, cars become “mobile speed bumps,” slowing the traffic behind them.
Drivers also agree to be more aware of and courteous to other road users, especially pedestrians and cyclists. Many Pace Cars can effectively calm traffic throughout your neighbourhood. The more people who join, the better it works!
