The SMV sign is for vehicles only. The use of a slow moving vehicle sign on a fixed object such as a roadside mailbox or as a driveway marker, is prohibited if it can be seen from the road. Slow moving vehicle signs attached to mailboxes or posts must be removed. Use reflectors or reflective tape instead. Municipalities can still post caution signs to warn motorists that slow moving vehicles often travel on their roads.

It's the law!


The revised rules for the use of the SMV sign came into effect in Ontario on December 1, 1996. You may be fined for not using the sign or for misusing it.

What if you see a slow moving vehicle?

It can be hazardous to suddenly come upon a slow moving vehicle on the road. If it is a horse-drawn carriage, the horse may be startled when a motor vehicle approaches and passes. Some vehicles are longer and wider and turn at places that are not well marked such as field entrances. The orange and red triangle is a signal to all drivers to slow down and be cautious. When you see it, reduce your speed and stay well back. Only pass when it is safe to do so.
