OTHER SIGNS

Slow Moving Vehicle

The “slow-moving vehicle” sign is an orange triangle with a red border. It alerts other drivers that the vehicle ahead will be travelling at 40 km/h or less. When on a road, farm tractors, farm implements/machinery, and vehicles not capable of sustaining speeds over 40 km/h must display the slow moving vehicle sign. Watch for these slow moving vehicles and reduce your speed as necessary.

EDR SIGN

EDR signs are used during the unscheduled closure of a provincial highway when OPP detour all traffic off the highway. The DR markers are located along alternative routes and provide direction to motorists around the closure and back onto the highway.

LONG COMMERCIAL VEHICLE (LCV)
