Thought this info was good enough to share. So share I shall:

Traffic Signals:

The City of Guelph’s policy on installing traffic signals is based upon achieving warrant guidelines set out by the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario Traffic Manual. The warrant takes into consideration the following factors:

  • Traffic volumes during the highest 8 hour periods of the day
  • Pedestrian volumes during the 8 highest hours of the day
  • Collision Experience over a 3 year period

The installation of traffic signals can be considered when at least one of the warrants is satisfied by 100%, or two warrants are satisfied by at least 80%.  For the collision warrant, a total of 15 collisions over a 3 year period is required that are correctable through the installation of a traffic control signal. Correctable collisions are right angle type collisions.

Pedestrian Signals:

Intersection Pedestrian Signals (IPS) are specifically designed to assist pedestrians in crossing the main street. They include:

  • pedestrian signal heads with “Walk” and “Don’t Walk” symbols
  • red, amber and green traffic signal indications for motorists on the main street which the pedestrians will be crossing
  • stop signs for motorists on the side street

The installation of this control device is based upon achieving warrant guidelines set out by the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario Traffic Manual. The warrant takes into consideration the following factors:

  • Minimum pedestrian crossing volume
  • Minimum pedestrian delay
  • Collison history
