I haven't seen these yet.

That does not look unusual! Even the shape of the sign is different! Ours are usually round!

Marleen said...

Maybe the sign is noticed more now because of the unusual colours.

I discovered your blog via a visitor to my site that have left their link. It's nice to meet another Canadian blogger, especially one from Ontario. I'll have to remember your link party for another time so that I can join in.

Ours crossing signs are usually black on yellow too - this one sure would catch MY eye!

Andy said...

In my neighbourhood there's still a mixture of green signs and the older yellow ones. This is the first I've seen with the black background. Have ever noticed the poor kids on the sign have no necks, hands or feet?

and I can't help thinking the boy especially has rather long legs for a kid!

we also still have some of the blue signs from way back, but only in the older established areas.

Hmmm, I thought it was a "caution elderly crossing" sign at first, but then there was no cane and books instead. Yes, rather tall for kids...
Thanks for hosting.

I like it, very bright!

New color - perhaps determined to be more noticeable? Compared to here, that's a fairly high speed for a school zone. Ours range from 15-25 mph.

At first sight it looked like an "eldery persons" sign to me too. 40 sounds a bit fast - it is 30 in urban areas here anyway and around schools and suchlike usually a max of 20.

It is very different from the ones in the UK.

Maybe changing the signs would be helpful since I believe most of us get so complacent with such things we finally get to the point where we don't even see them.

Jim said...

We have some of the old round design ones now in fluoro yellow but I don't like that colour for these signs.

Let's hope the change in color is making them more visible to drivers. I'm always amazed at how fast some people zip through my residential area. :S

It does catch one's attention, which is good. But 40 mph in a school zone? If indeed this is Canada's version of a school zone sign, the speed limit is much higher than in our school zones.

Actually I quite like that quite eye catching.
