The Pace Car Program is a resident-based initiative designed to calm traffic on Greensboro's busy streets. By signing the Pace Car Pledge and displaying the Pace Car magnet on your car, you can help set the pace for safe Greensboro streets.
How does it work?
Take the Pace Car Pledge and agree to:
- Drive within the speed limit on City streets, especially in residential areas
- Stop at all stop signs
- Stop at all red lights
- Stop to let pedestrians cross the street
- Be courteous to bicyclists
- Display the Pace Car sticker.
When you take the pledge, you are asked to display a Pace Car magnet on the rear of your vehicle to let other motorists know you are a Pace Car and to "Follow Me...Slow the Speed."
You are also given a small yellow Pace Car static sticker to be placed inside your vehicle so you see the sticker and are reminded of your Pace Car pledge.
Since Pace Car participants follow speed limits, vehicles driving behind a Pace Car must also obey the speed limit. If enough Greensboro residents take the pledge and become Pace Cars, then speeding motorists are slowed and Greensboro becomes a safer community. The Greensboro Department of Transportation encourages all residents to become Pace Cars!
