The purpose of regulatory road signs is to ensure the safety and protection of all drivers on the road. Many severe crashes may have been prevented if drivers adhered to the posted road signs. Regulatory road signs are used to let road users know about the legal requirements of any given area. Traffic direction signs in this context, are the responsibility of the state or municipality and are the result of city engineers’ and municipal planners’ advisements. On main roads, traffic direction signs such as “Four-Way Stop,” “Yield,” and “Do Not Enter” are critical to notify drivers of potential dangers.
Property owners also use signs on their private properties to inform and direct visitors. Signs on private property are mostly intended to be helpful in nature. They are designed to make residents and visitors aware of efficient road and trail use or of potential driving hazards to avoid. Creating a smooth traffic flow and encouraging safe driving and parking are smart ways to make your property, attraction, or parking lots more orderly, calm, and efficient. Information and traffic direction signs are also essential tools for minimizing legal litigation claims resulting from accidents or damage to your visitors’ vehicles.
Whether they are needed for official regulatory road directions or private property signage, custom traffic direction signs can be made and bought for both residential and commercial purposes.
