The Watch Your Speed program uses large signs to show motorists the speed their vehicles are travelling and to get them to slow down. The program is being expanded by the City of Toronto.
Changes have been made to the Watch Your Speed program to allow the program to operate on a year-round basis.
New self-contained speed boards have been constructed that allow the unit to stand alone to mark vehicle speeds. In previous years, trailers that mounted and moved the speed boards could not be used during the winter due to snow storage requirements on boulevards.
Four signs are rotated throughout the city. Locations are selected after suggestions from local Councillors, public requests, the city’s Transportation Services staff and the Toronto Police Service. The equipment is for information purposes only and does not issue speeding tickets.
Transportation Services is extremely concerned about safety in our communities.
The City of Toronto and Toronto Police Service continue to work together to get motorists to slow down in our neighbourhoods.
