Traffic Control Issues

Stop Signs

  • To have a new stop sign installed at an uncontrolled intersection, a request should be forwarded to the Transportation Planning Division at 1266 McDougall. An employee will then investigate the site to determine if a stop sign is required.
  • For information regarding the criteria for the installation of Stop Signs and All-Way Stops, please refer to the All Way Stop Policy.

Other Traffic Signs

  • Traffic sign installation is regulated by the Highway Traffic Act and its regulations and guidelines. Most signs have limitations pertaining to where they are placed. Signs are always placed on the public right-of-way. When it is required that a sign be placed on a front yard, installation usually occurs at the property line between abutting properties.
  • Any traffic sign takes 3 to 8 weeks to install after it has been approved.
  • For more information, refer to the Signs And Markings page.

Traffic Signals

  • To have a traffic signal installed at an intersection, a detailed written request with complete contact information should be forwarded to the Transportation Planning Division at 1266 McDougall either by mail or fax. An investigation is then undertaken at the intersection, which includes a warrant study (traffic and pedestrian counts). The warrant study factors are regulated by the Ministry of Transportation-Ontario under the Highway Traffic Act regulations.  Only if the warrants are met will the location be noted for future budget considerations. 

Speeding

  • To have speeding in your neighbourhood investigated, a request should be forwarded to the Transportation Planning Division at 1266 McDougall. An employee will then investigate the site. Alternatively, the Windsor Police Service should be called and a request for enforcement made.
  • For more information, please refer to the Traffic Calming Policy.

Sightline Problems

  • To report any sightline problems at an intersection, a request should be forwarded to the Transportation Planning Division at 1266 McDougall. An employee will then investigate the site for an appropriate solution.
