  • Average speed was 20.6 mph

Thank you to the Cranberry Township Police for your efforts during the Slow Down campaign and throughout the year.

Cranberry neighborhoods join together bi-annually to encourage drivers to adhere to the posted 25-miles per hour speed limit, as well as all posted speed limits throughout the Township.

More neighborhoods take part each year with hundreds of signs posted and distributed in the participating areas, along with mobile speed-reading trailers, traffic counter tubes, and increased police presence. The campaign is open to all neighborhoods (with at least 5 participating neighbors). Slow Down Campaign Guidelines

Operating at a safe speed and exercising good judgment on the roads, sidewalks, trails, and parking lots is everyone’s responsibility!

The Cranberry Township "Slow Down" project is patterned after the Nebraska-based nonprofit “Keep Kids Alive, Drive 25."
