PALM BAY – A local mother, Amanda Kingsley, is working to raise awareness about speeding vehicles in neighborhoods and unmarked bus stop areas by posting signs encouraging speeders to slow down.

She created the movement #MyNeighborhoodOurChange for residents to promote positive changes in our community. The first one is for speeding and bus stops.

“Our community awareness of specific streets and unmarked bus stops can raise caution to drivers and hopefully reduce the accidents and issues our neighbors face. The plan is to start small and change our neighborhood one issue at a time starting with your street,” Kingsley’s told Palm Bay Daily.

She teamed up with a local sign company who has been in Brevard since 1989. She is currently raising money to purchase 100 signs and work with the top neighborhoods in raising awareness.

Kingsley’s has reached out to the Palm Bay Community Facebook page to get more information from other parents who would like to join in on her cause.

Here are the questions that she would like answered:

  • Which streets are the worst?
  • How much would you pay for a yard sign?
  • Would your neighbors stand for a cause like this?
Watch for speeding children.

“I created a gofundme page for the production of 100 signs that we will distribute to the neighborhoods and bus stops of priority. If anyone wants to be apart of this or donate to assist (the more signs, the less cost) I created the hashtag #MYneighborhoodOURchange, Kingsley added.

If you would like to donate to this cause visit the GoFundMe Page.
