You can help slow down vehicles in your neighbourhood with these large signs showing motorists the speed their vehicles are traveling and encouraging them to slow down.

The City’s portable units are rotated throughout each ward on a monthly basis throughout the year. You can suggest a location by requesting a sign using the online form at the top of this page or through your local Councillor’s office. Local Councillors, the City’s Transportation Services staff and the Toronto Police Service also issue requests for these signs. The equipment is for information purposes only and does not issue speeding tickets.

To request Mobile WYSP for your street, complete and submit the online form.

The Mobile WYSP uses devices called speed display signs or driver feedback signs which contain a radar device and an LED display. These signs are installed against an existing hydro pole or streetlight and no longer require the space of trailers previously used for installations. The radar measures the speeds of oncoming vehicles and the LED sign displays their speeds to the passing motorists, thereby reminding them to check their speeds and to obey speed limits.

Each location is assessed by City staff using a set of criteria. A location may also be ineligible for Mobile WYSP due to site specific considerations other than those listed below. Staff will attempt to install WYSP at the suggested location/address, but an alternative location/address may be placed if the suggested location/address is not favourable.

  • The device can be operated on a roadway with maximum two lanes per direction and primarily on residential roadways
  • The device can only be placed on public property, such as a boulevard
  • There must be no obstruction blocking the radar signal or visibility to the display, such as tree foliage or parked cars
  • There must be a permanent fixture, such as a pole, suitable for securing the sign
  • The location cannot be close to a traffic signal, stop sign facing oncoming traffic or short road section
  • The location cannot be close to a curve in the road
  • Placement of the device must comply with the City’s Accessibility and Design Guidelines and Vibrant Streets Guidelines
  • Site conditions must be safe for all road users and City staff
  • Locations must not have traffic calming measure implemented
  • Locations must not be in the vicinity of a hydro-electric corridor

Signs will be placed for 2-3 weeks in each location.
