Application Guidelines for Speed Display Devices

Dynamic speed display signs are being used in many jurisdictions across Canada. The devices display the speed of passing vehicles, typically along with a sign showing the posted speed limit. Intended to increase driver awareness of speed limits and to provide instant feedback to motorists by displaying the actual speed being travelled, the devices have been found to be effective shortly following installation. The Application Guidelines for Speed Display Devices were developed to establish best practices and guidance for speed display devices design and application in the Canadian context for a variety of uses. The Guidelines enable and encourage uniformity in application of devices throughout Canada, and are intended to be a complementary detailed reference document, for use in conjunction with the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada (MUTCDC).
