Ontario School Zone Signs
In Ontario, school zones are designated areas surrounding schools that experience high foot traffic from students. These zones are protected by strict driving rules and traffic signs. As a responsible driver, it’s crucial to understand and adhere to these regulations.
ATS Traffic offers a range of school zone signs, including:
- School Zone Sign: This fluorescent, five-sided sign features a black silhouette of two pedestrians crossing. It indicates that you’re entering a school zone, requiring you to drive slowly, be cautious, and watch out for children.
- Flashing School Zone Sign: Resembling a typical school zone sign stacked on top of a speed limit sign, this one has flashing lights on both sides. These lights activate during school hours to remind drivers to maintain the specified speed limit.
- School Crossing: Rectangular yellow signs with silhouettes of two pedestrians walking indicate an approaching school crossing. Follow the instructions provided by the school safety patroller or crossing guard.
ATS Traffic offers WC Series warning signs for Ontario school zones. All Ontario school zone signs manufactured by ATS Traffic meet and exceed the specifications regulated by Ontario governing bodies.
As a 3M certified fabricator, ATS Traffic manufactures top-of-the-line school zone signs for Ontario. These signs are deployed in various municipalities across the province, which includes the city of Toronto and parts of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) such as Mississauga, Newmarket, Brampton, Oshawa, and Markham. To increase visibility and enhance pedestrian safety, ATS Traffic recommends Carmanah’s MX Series school zone beacons.

Crosswalk Signs in Ontario
ATS Traffic manufactures Ontario crosswalk signs in accordance with provincial specifications in various municipalities. Classified as warning signs, Ontario crosswalk signs are designed to give ample notice to motorists as they enter areas where pedestrian activity is considerably high.
What is an RRFB?
Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFB) are used to enhance the visibility of road signage and keep motorists alert in both day and nighttime settings on public roads. Deployed as a traffic calming device to help control the speed of vehicles, RRFBs maximize the safety of all road users by regulating the mobility of traffic as vehicles enter work zones, school zones, or other public settings of high pedestrian activity in municipalities.
