Issaquah Highlands is taking on traffic and pedestrian safety in our community
Highlands Council and the IHCA are working with City of Issaquah to identify ways that we can facilitate changes in traffic safety, as requested by the community. Highlands Council started the highly-visual “Drive with Care, Walk Aware” campaign, including roving A-board signs on neighborhood streets. This educational campaign is just the start to a larger movement to enhance traffic and pedestrian safety in our community.

Issaquah Highlands Drive with Care, Walk Aware Traffic Safety Pledge
I pledge to:
- Drive with care, don’t rush, and watch out for others walking, biking and driving in our community.
- Drive slower throughout the community — I believe 25 mph is plenty.
- Stop for pedestrians by coming to a complete stop before the crosswalk, allowing people to cross the street safely.
- Walk aware as a pedestrian and only cross at crosswalks.
- Look out before I step out into the crosswalk by making eye contact with drivers before I cross.
- Drive like I live here — because I do! By driving safe, I will help keep my family, friends and neighbors safe, too.
