How do I get "Children At Play" signs installed on my street?
The Texas Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (TMUTCD) states playground signs, instead of "Children At Play" signs, may be used to give motorists advance warning of a designated children’s playground located adjacent to the roadway. The city installs playground signage for neighborhood parks, city parks or a park next to an elementary school.

Children are present on every residential street in McKinney. Installing "Children At Play" signs at places where children would be playing would require installation of such signs on most residential streets in McKinney. Overexposure of any sign to a driver makes signs ineffective. For this reason, TMUTCD states signage shall only be installed at designated playground areas.
