Intercity Transit’s Walk N Roll program is partnering with Target Zero Thurston Task Force, Safe Kids Thurston County and the Olympia Police Department to design, print, and distribute yard signs with traffic safety messages. Signs will be displayed at homes located in school zones and neighborhoods where students are walking and rolling. The goal is to encourage drivers to slow down to improve safety. This project is funded by State Farm.

Where do I get a sign?

In spring 2021, we will distribute signs to families and community members at school and neighborhood events. Due to limited funding, this pilot project will focus on a couple of Olympia neighborhoods.  

What will the signs say?

Based on a community survey, the signs will say:

  • Drive slowly for a safer Oly.
  • Save lives, not seconds.
  • Safe drivers = Good neighbors.
