Method 1: Sit in a chair option.


1. Install our Chrome App “Speed Limit Grab”  here.    (Please note, this extension isn’t malware. You can install it from source code. This is the life of a charity…)

2. (one time) Put your name in the OPTIONS so we know who did the Service Hours…



3. Hit the white button again.

4. Click on Mr yellow man.

5. Move around until you find a speed limit sign. They are everywhere!

6. Click the same white button again, then click on the speed limit number. Thats it! You are immortal like adopt-a-road…  You will see your Stats on the right



7. Post a message below, and tell how many hours you worked on it and how many signs you found. Do that when you are done with your hours and we will email you a certificate.

NOTE 6/18/2020: We have no staff, so we will not be able to prepare more than one certificate for you. There are plenty of charities out there. Don’t wear us out. Only contact us when you are completely done and we will gladly issue you ONE certificate. 


8. Don’t add yellow signs. They are not speed limits, rather, speed advisories. Point down the street!  (click to watch video tutorial)





Thats it!

Actual certificates.




Hello, I have found many signs but every week after I log back in, my signs disappear from the menu on the right. Is that supposed to happen? And if so, how do I keep track of my hours?

I apologize if I have done something wrong but I believe I did exactly as the instructions pertained and completed exactly 100 hours. However the last 4 or 5 times I completed sessions, I noticed, that I was not able to find my signs anymore on the wikispeedia/tmp page. Is this by any chance part of the problem why my signs aren’t appearing? Is it possible that there is something wrong with the archive?

Yesenia Perez: you are not pointing down the street. Look on and many of your signs have direction of 350 degrees when they should say 270. This means you are tilting toward the sign. Dont so that. Point down the road next to the sign. Thanks

Hello my name is Sawaira Khan and today on July 18th, 2020 I have found a total of 227 speed limit signs. Thank you

Sawaira Khan: How many hours did you work?

Hello, I found around 805 signs in around 50 hours from 5/27/20 to 6/30/20. I was also wondering whether I am able to continue this for a set time to do more hours and get another certificate? Thank you!
