Watch for Children Signs

Watch for Children Sign 

The purpose of the Watch for Children warning sign is to warn drivers of the unexpected presence of children on or near a designated roadway. It is felt that displaying this message will encourage drivers to be more cautious when travelling within a neighbourhood.

Signs are considered on roads when the following criteria are met:

  • Two-lane collector road
  • Contain direct residential frontage
  • Intersect with an arterial road
  • Show evidence of non-local traffic

Final decisions on sign placement will be based on traffic engineering guidelines and principles.
