Slow Down Sacramento Charter

Read our vision and mission here.

Our Vision

We envision a Sacramento where every street is safe for all—motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and any other user. We believe in a city where respect and caution reign, where every resident shares in the responsibility to create safer streets, and where speed limits are observed not just as a legal obligation but as a social contract we honor for the safety of all.

Our Mission

  • Respect: We promote respect for all road users, including drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, public transportation riders, and all other users.
  • Responsibility: We encourage every resident to take individual responsibility for making our roads safer.
  • Community: We are committed to fostering a sense of community among residents in the Sacramento region, uniting us all in the cause of road safety.
  • Inclusivity: We believe everyone has a right to safe transportation, regardless of their mode of travel.
