We drive 25 for the safety of our neighborhoods

The City of Port St. Lucie is putting the brakes on excessive speeding and reckless driving on residential streets. Residents can show their support by driving 25 mph, taking the “We Drive 25” Pledge to commit to keeping our streets safe and spreading the word about the speed limit change to their families, neighbors and friends.

25 mph neighborhood speed limit sign

The City Council, on July 26, 2021, passed Ordinance 21-64, Areawide Speed Limit Reduction Within Specified Neighborhoods, and directed staff to replace the street signs. The installation of 1,130 residential street signs is now complete across Port St. Lucie, excluding gated communities, lowering the neighborhood speed limits from 30 to 25 mph.

“We made this change for the protection of our residents and neighborhoods,” said Mayor Shannon Martin. “But it all comes down to individual choices and decisions, and we all must work together for it to be successful.”

“Speed is too often a factor in preventable crashes where Port St. Lucie residents, particularly seniors and children, are killed or injured,” said Police Chief John Bolduc. “When drivers are going 25 mph, drivers and pedestrians have more time to see each other and react. This small 5-mph decrease in speed means many crashes can be avoided altogether. If a crash happens, it’s less likely to cause serious injury or death.”

Window Cling We Drive 25

To help inform our residents of the new speed limit, the City created a “We Drive 25” for the safety of our neighborhoods campaign with educational tools to help remind motorists to drive 25. One way residents can display their support of the initiative is by completing the online “We Drive 25” Pledge, then picking up a free yard sign or window decal, while supplies last, at City Hall, 121 SW Port St. Lucie Blvd., Building A, during business hours. Another way residents can show their support is by circulating messaging. A downloadable social media toolkit, printable brochures and tips on how to prevent speeding are located on the City’s website at www.CityofPSL.com/Speeding.

For the past 12 years, Port St. Lucie has been named the Safest Large City in Florida, according to Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s crime stats. In addition, U.S. News and World Report named Port St. Lucie as the second safest city in the nation. Together, drivers can extend that safety to our roadways ensuring safe use of public rights-of-ways for all citizens, including walkers, cyclists, runners, dog walkers, stroller pushers and letter carriers.
