Thank you for the safety signs, Park Ridge! I saw these around town and thought they were particularly noticable when multiple signs were placed within close proximity of each other. All too often, people fly down our residential street. I requested one of these for my house and have shared with 3 other neighboring homes whose children also play outside. I hope these will help drivers pass with more caution! On a side note, this message is way better than, "SLOW Children at Play. " You can request these from the Traffic Coordinator at 847-318-5220

I have the same issue on my street of cars far exceeding the posted limit. In addition I live on a corner with no stop signs on either street. I hear honking and screeching of tires a few times a week. To top it off Main South is only two blocks away with some of the students speeding away from school. I too will request a signs for my yard. However it would be nice if I saw the Park Ridge police around the neighborhood more often than a couple of times a month.

Cars drive here be careful. You never know who drives through. Teach your kids to stay of the street. They don't bolong there. That's what I did with my children.

I don't care if there is a stop sign or not, I always stop at intersections. unless there's a bicyclist. then its pedal to the medal.

Someone should put those signs all over the Maine South Parking lot. I always feel like I'm playing Russian roulette with these kids racing in and out of there.

Why would anyone pay attention to those signs if they don’t pay attention to stop/speed limit signs?

As great as these signs are, it’s extremely annoying when parents put out in the street there little man with flag, thus creating a one lane instead of two thus creating more of a chance of an accident. Taking a good idea and taking it too far.

The sad thing, signs shouldn't be needed - it should be automatic.

Extra reminder to all : Any street where a house resides is residential. It amazes me how many people go so fast down Devon, Cumberland, and Talcott at speeds close to or over the reckless driving speed. To clarify, that is 30 mph over the speed limit. so when I see someone going 60 mph down Devon it really makes me upset that the city doesn’t and hasn’t monitored it. I have called often to report this.

I will never understand how so many folks have become detached from reality. Point being, you can't drive like an imbecile and expect that your child will not be affected by the same mentality. What gives also goes. The phrase "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" applies, because in the end, nobody ends up unscathed. Think people - think . . life isn't all about you - you too have a lot to lose.

I don't expect this to solve the problem. If it helps 10% of drivers be more mindful when passing through, then it's worth the trouble for me to put this up. It's not always the typical reckless drivers who are involved in accidents. Almost every other person on the road is looking at their phone, in a rush or just generally distracted while driving. ANY driver can benefit from a reminder like this, not just the "bad" ones. It happens to all of us.
