Not sure if you are referring to private advertising signs or those on municipal/provincial property. It's called advertising. I don't like the clutter, but here we are. I assume both (every) municipality has a 'sign bylaw'. What they say and how strongly they are enforced depends. The MTO 'attractions' signs are paid for by the businessattraction and are not cheap. I see some municipalities have something similar on their roads and assume they are similarly funded.I suspect this is one of the reasons Crombie and McCallion before wanted to separate from Peel. Regional roads have lots of rural-style signage and excess sign clutter such as prominent freeway-type signage pointing to every golf course, motel, and piddly little attraction. Being in an RM infanticizes cities due to stuff like this.
Thanks. I didn't know the numbers changed.The address numbering is different in Dufferin and Simcoe and I assume their dispatch systems are too. The highest number on Airport Rd. in Peel is 19, 054, and the lowest in Dufferin is 933,003.
Same call centre/dispatch system. If the call comes from a landline or viop (properly programmed) phone it's not particularly problematic since the location pops up on the screen. Same with a GPS-enabled celphone.
