Yard Sign Lender Program


The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation SLOW DOWN yard signs feature an 18" X 24" sign in corrugated plastic (FREE with 6 Vision Zero safety pledge signatures) or aluminum ($25 deposit required, deposit refunded if the sign is returned in good condition within 1 year).

The Bureau of Transportation yard signs are portable and suitable for quick and easy display by residents on their personal property. If possible, signs should be brought indoors each evening to minimize vandalism.

After your yard sign order form has been received along with the required signatures or deposit, you will be contacted to pick up your yard sign from the City of Portland Bureau of Transportation, First Floor Service Desk, 1120 Southwest Fifth Avenue.


All yard signs have a "SLOW DOWN Set the pace." message on one side and one of three messages on the reverse side: 

  • LOOK for kids and seniors
  • STOP for people crossing
  • WATCH for people biking

Please specify which message you want with your yard sign.
