Raleigh launches anti-speeding campaign

The City of Raleigh hopes to cut down on the number of accidents involving vehicles colliding with pedestrians and bicycles with a new pilot program.

The City is spending $36,000 on the campaign using posters and radio advertisements.

Officials say 1,300 hundred accidents were caused by speeding in North Carolina last year.

The pilot program will focus on certain sections of the city:

  • Quail Hollow Drive
  • Wide River Drive
  • Oakwood Avenue from Person Street to North Raleigh Boulevard
  • Clark Avenue from Faircloth Street to Dixie Trail
  • Ridge Road from Varnell Avenue to Leonard Street

The City says those corridors see a record number of drivers speeding.

The pilot will run until the end of November and the city will then present findings to the city council.
