Create Pace Car Community Teams
Community groups and/or schools are invited to become Pace Car Community Teams to promote the Pace Car in specific neighbourhoods. See the Pace Car Community Kit to learn how to form a team and get the Pace Car program running in your neighbourhood.

Pace Car Deputies
Pace Car Deputies is an aspect of the Pace Car program, meant to be offered in conjunction with the larger Pace Car program in a community. Pace Car Deputies is for elementary school-aged children. It is a leadership opportunity helping children address the issue of speeding and road safety in their community. In cooperation with the Ecology Action Centre and the local Community Pace Car team, children learn about the hazards of speeding and how they can help stop speeding even though they don’t drive. Each child takes a pledge to become a Pace Car Deputy and receives an official Pace Car Deputy badge/button and pledge card.
