Abstracts In response to a growing number of public requests for small animal crossing signs, the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) Traffic Office in partnership with MTO’s Environmental Policy Office (EPO) developed a policy for use of Wildlife Habitat Awareness (WHA) signs that was finalized in March 2012 (MTO 2012). In light of this new policy and the uncertainties in sign effectiveness a study design was devised that used motorist surveys and traffic speed counters as two methods to evaluate motorist response to WHA signs. Additionally, a third method was used to evaluate whether snake and turtle wildlife road mortality decreased at signed sections
