Neighborhood Slow Zone Program invites neighbors to apply for traffic calming in an entire zone of residential streets. The City will work hand-in-hand with successful applicants to bring traffic calming to an entire “Slow Zone.” Within selected Slow Zones, the Neighborhood Slow Zone Program will:
• Work with the neighbors to develop a plan for traffic calming that responds to critical safety issues;
• Lower speed limits to 20MPH;
• Install traffic calming (speed cushions and more).

Each state establishes its own criteria for what makes a crash “reportable.” In Pennsylvania, a crash is reportable if it involves a motor vehicle and:
(a) a motor vehicle is towed from the scene
(b) someone is transported to the hospital in an ambulance or
(c) a fatality occurs (PA Vehicle Code Title 75 Section 3746 (a)).
Involved in a crash? Call 911.
