Review for Keep Kids Alive Drive 25, Omaha, NE, USA
As HOA president, I was always looking for ways to remind drivers to slow down, obey stop signs and be more alert. No one wanted more speed humps... and other "traffic calming" devices were pretty expense. Our city Traffic Manager suggested I look into KKAD25, so I did.
Tom Everson, the founder of KKAD25, was very helpful in explaining the program and made a number of suggestions on what would work best in our particular situation. We invested in Yard Signs, Waste Can Stickers and Entrance Signs.
We were the first neighborhood in our city to use the KKAD25 program. Since then, the City Council and Police Department have adopted the program and a number of neighborhoods have invested in KKAD25.
We have found that the variety in size, location and messages of the signs creates passive reminders that people really notice. And the nice part is... no training, no fees, no minimum investment. You can do as much or as little as your neighborhood wishes.
In our case, our waste management company paid for the entrance signs as a community service and the city installed them at no charge!
A great traffic calming program!
