Stand Up Against Speeding In Our Neighborhoods
Neighborhood speeding is a chronic issue in our area, and Supervisor Cook thinks it's time the Board did more to stop it. Last year police officers gave out 25,526 tickets or nearly 70 per day in Fairfax County. Of course, that's only the people who were caught! This year, police are on pace to hand out even more speeding tickets
In 2012 the Board of Supervisors approved Supervisor Cook's proposal to create a multi-faceted effort to combat speeding and unsafe driving in our neighborhoods. The program is a cost-effective way to reduce unsafe driving in our neighborhoods and protect our families. However the Board has not yet approved the funding to move the program forward. While the FY 2014 budget has already been passed, the Board is about to pass the FY 2013 Carryover Package. Supervisor Cook will be asking his colleagues at the September 10th Board Meeting to use some of these funds to get this important initiative moving.
Supervisor Cook needs your help to show his colleagues how important this issue is. Please take a minute to sign this online petition calling on the Board to act now. Then take a few minutes more to post this page on your Facebook, Twitter and email it to friends in the County.
