The signs were placed along Burns, Iroquois, Seneca, Fisher and from Warren to Gratiot.

Kaytea Moreno, a mother two, says the community initiative is important to getting drivers to slow down. The area, which is near Pingree Park on the city's east side, is close to four schools.

The child that was injured was hit on Iroquois Avenue.
