Meeting for volunteers on Oct 23: help us slow traffic so kids can trick-or-treat safely

The PHCA is organizing a costumed traffic calming trick or treat volunteer effort for Halloween evening. So many cut-through, speeding drivers come through our neighborhood during rush hour that we wanted to do something to calm rush hour traffic and help keep kids safer while they’re trick-or-treating.

Costumed volunteers will be posted at busy intersections with signs, to create awareness for drivers who think of this as a shortcut, not a neighborhood.

We’ll be having a meeting at the PHCA office on Wednesday, Oct 23 from 6-7 to talk strategy, pick locations and costumes, and so on. If you’re interested in helping out, please call 412.681.1950 orĀ  email, and please come to the meeting!
