Slow Down Signs

Slow Down Sign

In the Fall of each year, Transportation Services has historically noted a significant increase in the number of pedestrian and cyclist collisions on our roads.

To help address this, Transportation Services undertakes an annual Fall Safety Awareness Campaign in order to bring this issue forward in the minds of our motorists.

This year’s campaign will feature a series of temporary “Please Slow Down” lawn signs that, with your help, can be made available to members of the public free of charge.

The temporary sign should:

  • Be placed on public property (between the curb or edge of roadway and the property line)
  • Have the wire frame inserted into the ground (no 2X4 stands or suspended from trees)
  • Not obstruct the sidewalk
  • Be located at least 0.6m (2′) away from the curb and 3m from a fire hydrant
  • Not be attached to any structure, post or pole.
  • Cause no obstruction to sight lines
  • Not obstruct the access to, or operation of, a culvert, bridge or overpass
  • Be used as supplied without modification or illumination (just the light from the street and no reflective tape)
  • Not be placed in a road median
  • Not be on an expressway or expressway ramp
  • Only be displayed between April 1st and November 30th

You can arrange to pick up a sign by contacting Councillor Fragedakis at or 416-392-4032.
