Take it Slow, Tahoe yard signs were free to the public!

Interested in keeping the roads in your neighborhood safe? This summer, you could pick up a free Take it Slow yard sign at one of nine distribution sites around the lake. As the summer comes to a close we are no longer distributing yard signs, and will be encouraging people to take down their signs before the snow starts to fall. Keep an eye out for the free yard signs again in the summer of 2024.

Why Take it Slow? According to the June 2022 New Yorker article When Cars Kill, “the average pedestrian, if struck by a car moving at forty miles per hour, has about a fifty-per-cent chance of survival. If the car is going twenty miles per hour, the pedestrian has more than a ninety-per-cent chance.” 

Incline Village resident Helen Neff proposed the campaign to Take Care Tahoe partners after being hit by a reckless driver in her hometown while legally crossing the street in a crosswalk on a clear day in 2021.
