KNOW YOUR ROAD SIGNS
Road signs are found next to the road. Some indicate to road users what they may and may not do, and others provide helpful information. Road signs use symbols and letters that make them fast and easy to understand.
Regulatory signs help regulate the orderly flow of traffic. These signs are subdivided into different colours and shapes to make them instantly recognisable: control (eg stop signs) prohibition (eg speed limit) command (eg keep left) reservation (eg reserved lanes) Temporary traffic control signs are signs on a yellow background and are temporarily put up where there are roadworks. Warning signs provide information about potential dangers road users might come across. Warning signs come in the form of a red triangle, usually with a black symbol on a white background. Information signs give road users useful information to make their journey easier. These are white on a green background.
Guiding signs indicate to road users where they are, how to get to certain destinations and where the road they’re on leads. These are especially useful for those who might not be familiar with the area.
