Speed limits and pedestrian safety

Campus speed limits

The speed limit on campus streets is 20 mph, unless otherwise posted. APD officers patrol and monitor traffic on campus and will write state citations to drivers who do not honor the posted speeds and traffic laws. Please remember that pedestrian traffic is always a consideration on our campus and the low speed limits are in place for the protection of both drivers and pedestrians.

Pedestrian safety

NC law states that motor vehicles must slow down or stop to allow pedestrians to cross the street when they are in a marked crosswalk or an unmarked crosswalk at or near an intersection. For safety reasons we suggest pedestrians be alert and use good judgment when crossing any street on campus. Try to make eye contact with the driver of the vehicle and always look both ways before stepping into the crosswalk. Do not assume that a vehicle can or will stop, even though you are at a designated crosswalk.
