City Promotes Safe Neighborhood Driving, Issues "Drive Like Your Kids Live Here" Signs
Hopkinsville Mayor Carter Hendricks announced the availability of Drive Like Your Kids Live Here Signs for local neighborhood residents to promote even greater driver safety. Signs measure 18” x 24”. One free sign per household may be picked up from the Public Works Department, located at 705 North Main Street, Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Supplies are limited.
Mayor Hendricks noted, “This is a great idea that was shared with us by a local resident. We appreciate that the community is engaged in ways we can work together in new, innovative, and interactive ways to increase safety in our neighborhoods.”
To avoid code violations, residents are reminded to be sure and place signs within their yards and not in a right-of-way. In general, this means signs should be placed behind utility poles and sidewalks.
