Residents of the historic Cameron Park neighborhood just west of downtown Raleigh hope their grassroots Traffic Calming Project will help them reclaim safety and serenity on streets that are narrow, car-lined and winding. Their neighborhood's 25 mph Speed Limit is often ignored by commuters cutting through to avoid traffic congestion resulting from Hillsborough Street redevelopment - and teenagers who drag race. About 40 signs will go up throughout the neighborhood asking, politely, for folks to slow it down.
