Traffic Control Sign Installation and Repair Services
In order to convey messages or symbols to drivers correctly, traffic signs are implemented throughout highways and streets. These devices are made with retroreflective materials that reflect light from headlights back towards the driver’s eyes. This is to achieve maximum visibility, especially at night. Traffic signs are essential because, without them, drivers are not properly given any information about the circumstances of the road they’re on. This can lead to catastrophic events if not properly dealt with.
While there is much to be said about the design, placement, operation, and maintenance of signs, there are a few key principles that are critical for traffic signs to be effective. In general, they must:
- Fulfill a need
- Command attention
- Convey a clear, simple meaning
- Command respect from road users
- Give adequate time for proper response
