Speed Management

Speed Management

safe streetsThe primary objective of this program is to educate and change driver behavior, thereby increasing driver compliance with the posted speed limit. To affect positive behavioural change, communication must be relevant and meaningful to the drivers.

In response to speeding concerns received, qualified staff first conduct an evaluation of the affected street to determine if any deficiencies exist that could be remedied through traffic control devices or improved signage. If problems persist, the street may be considered as a candidate to receive a speed radar display board. Candidate streets are chosen based on a comprehensive point-ranking system that assesses multiple technical criteria. Criteria includes, but is not limited to vehicle speed, volume, collisions, provision of sidewalks and proximity to schools.

The City has 24 speed display boards (3 per ward) that are installed on priority streets for a 3-month period. Using radar technology, the boards have the ability to capture vehicle speeds and display them back to the driver, advising them if they are travelling too fast. Before/after studies have shown a significant reduction in vehicle speeds on streets where these devices are installed.

If you would like your street to be evaluated, please contact the Contact Centre at 905-475-4707 or at

The location of the speed display boards is provided below (as of April 2, 2018).
