Are Your Traffic Signs Compliant With the MUTCD?

Are Your Traffic Signs Compliant With the MUTCD?

Traffic and Parking Signs increase safety, prevent accidents and can be used to post policies on roadways and parking lots. The 2009 revisions to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) require that Traffic Signs everywhere, including those on private roads open to the public, adhere to MUTCD standards. In fact, there are five basic requirements for every traffic control. Each must:

1. Fulfill a need.
2. Command attention.
3. Convey a clear, simple meaning.
4. Command respect from road users.
5. Give adequate time for proper response.
