Traffic Signs - What would we do without them?

One of the first signs young children learn about is the stop sign. Bold, red and noticeable, children quickly learn this octagon means "Stop!" proving the value traffic and stop signs play in our daily lives from the very earliest age. Signs play a vital role in how we go about business as drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Traffic signs help us navigate, stay safe and build community.

On Our Way
Going from point A to point B doesn't get done without traffic signs. Traffic signs tell us where we are and where we are going. Without them, we couldn't navigate city streets, highways or sidewalks.

Play it Safe
Left turn only? Lane ending? Watch out for pedestrians? Signs work to keep us safe as we drive or walk to our destinations. Traffic and stop signs alert everyone using roadways about what to expect and how to behave keeping us all safer as we travel to our destinations.

Working Together
Through traffic signs, we achieve a sense of community. We all play by the same set of rules created by traffic signs. Together, we keep each other safe and arrive to our destination on time.

All traffic and parking signs from all manufacturers are basically made from the same materials - steel, aluminum or plastic.  These materials are susceptible to:

  - Fading from sun damage
  - Rust from rain and mist
  - Cracking from the cold winds
  - Graffiti from vandals
