Many communities have taken action against rat runners. Some have put up obstacles to slow these drivers down, while others have taken action to keep rat runners out of their streets altogether. Some of the following methods are commonly used to keep rat runners away from residential areas:
- Stop lights, stop signs, and speed bumps
- Special school zone posts
- Special police patrols around school zones
