City of Toronto reminds all road users to take extra care on roads in residential neighbourhoods

October 23, 2017

The City of Toronto is reminding all road users – pedestrians, cyclists and drivers – to be more aware of each other, especially as we enter a season when daylight hours are greatly reduced.

To help remind the public to slow down and to be aware, the City of Toronto has produced two new Please Slow Down lawn signs that remind road users to drive carefully as they travel in local neighbourhoods with older adults (orange sign) and school children (blue sign). The new signs include graphics of older adults walking and two children playing. The public can help spread this safety message by picking up signs at their local councillor’s office and displaying them in their neighbourhoods.
