Does the City install “Children at Play” signs?
The City no longer installs "Children at Play" signs. Studies have found that these warning signs are not effective in reducing the number of speeding motorists. Further, there are issues associated with those signs:
1. Potential attraction of child predators
2. The signs may insinuate that it’s okay for children to play in the street. But the street is not a safe place to play.
3. If some streets had "Children at Play" signs and other street did not - does that mean there are no kids living on the streets without signs?
4. "Children at Play" signs may give children and parents a false sense of security.
