Lawn signs asking drivers to slow down are now available to interested residents, businesses, schools and organizations in the city of Guelph. The lawn signs are a part of our Community Road Safety Strategy which includes strategies and programs to improve road safety to benefit all users, whether you are walking, cycling, riding transit, using a mobility device or driving.
A limited number of lawn signs are available and are provided on a first come, first served basis. These signs are produced by the City and are free for all community members.
