‘Pace Car’ Program Gets Grant from VPIS

Falls Church’s Village Preservation and Improvement Society has awarded $500 to the City’s Citizen Advisory Committee on Transportation (CACT) to produce safe-driving pamphlets and also stickers that can be displayed on vehicles of City residents who pledge to drive within the speed limit, stop for pedestrians and generally drive courteously, a program that will begin later this year.

So reported Andrea Caumont, chair of the CACT who presented that group’s annual report to the F.C. City Council Monday night. The effort is called the Neighborhood Pace Car Program. The CACT is currently focusing on crosswalk projects at both the Little Falls-Great Falls and Gundry-Annandale intersections.

Council members expressed interest in more traffic calming measures given the incentive for the development of new cut-through patterns with new major construction getting underway in the City.
