Community Speed Awareness Program

Your safety matters to us.

The Community Speed Awareness Program is a safety initiative that lets drivers know their actual operating speed while bringing awareness about the speed limits on residential roads.

How it works

We install temporary radar speed signs on streets throughout the city, based on community requests.

Each street location will have two radar speed signs, one in each direction.

Signs are installed spring through fall each year, subject to weather and available staff resources.

Sign locations and types of signs

We want to ensure the radar speed signs are equally and fairly distributed throughout the city. Once a street location has been a part of the program, it will not be considered for another speed radar sign installation until the following year. This may change if we are able to increase the number of signs or if there are no more new location requests.

We have six battery-operated signs that rotate every two weeks to three different streets throughout the city. These signs are only used for lower volume roads, like Kipling Avenue or Silurian Drive. We only have six signs, so once the program is scheduled for the year, requests will close.

Staff monitor the program closely and make adjustments as needed.
