Signs reminding drivers to slow down installed at two Roanoke parks

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) The perfect weather for spending a night at the park with the kids is here, and the City of Roanoke wants to help keep everyone safe.

The Rotary Club of Roanoke-Downtown and Roanoke Parks and Rec installed signs at Lakewood and Thrasher parks. They read Drive Carefully, Protect Our Children.

Roanoke City Police helped determine where the signs should go.

The police department says this is a prevention plan and doesn't mean increased enforcement.

It just wants drivers to keep an extra eye out and remember to be safe.
