Event Description

Good morning!
A group of us neighbors are putting together a traffic-calming event -- a demonstration, really -- and we're inviting you to join us.  We plan to spend a few hours some afternoon(s), walking up and down the sidewalks holding signs to encourage drivers to slow down and make the streets and sidewalks safer.  Of course, we need to make the signs, to choose the best date(s) and time(s), and to get enough people together to make it count.  That's where you can help.
Here's what we have in mind:
  • Make a bunch of 1'x2' (or so) signs.  We're pretty sure that "SLOW DOWN, IDIOT!" and "YO MAMA WOULDN'T GUN IT" would be less effective than "THAT OTHER PEDAL IS A BRAKE" and "YOUR MOTHER WOULDN'T DRIVE LIKE THAT", butyou'd get to invent or choose your own message and make your own sign.
  • Get together to walk the walk.  The target this time is Front Street and Grand Avenue, near the intersection, and we're considering Labor Day afternoon (Monday, Sept 1) starting at 2:00pm.  We're open to suggestions for better date(s) and time(s).
We will host a sign-making session at 29 Grand at 4:00pm Saturday, August 30.   We'll provide the tools and materials but the design and lettering of your sign(s) is up to you.  You could, of course, grab the materials in advance and build a sign or two at any other time, but we think that brainstorming the messages as a group would be more productive and even fun.
So, are you in?  Let us know by emailing me at  with any questions, comments, or suggestions.
Thanks in advance!
Nath and Don
