Can I get a "Children at Play" traffic sign on my street?

It may seem that “Children at Play” signs protect children, and some communities have used them. However, the facts show otherwise and no evidence exists that these type signs reduce pedestrian crashes or lower speeds. Children should not be encouraged to play in the street and these signs could provide a false sense of security, suggesting that playing in the street is acceptable. For these reasons along with Federal Guidelines and the concern that the use of unnecessary signs can promote disrespect for all signs, Traffic Operations does not recommend installation of these type signs.
