Traffic Signs

Code: TE-7900.8580

Programs that are responsible for the installation and maintenance of traffic control signs on city streets or other roads within the jurisdiction. Included are regulatory signs (e.g., stop signs, yield signs, speed limit signs, turn and lane use signs, one way signs) which regulate traffic speed and movement; warning signs (e.g., low clearance signs and work zone signs) which warn people about hazards that may be difficult to see; and guidance signs which provide directions to parks, nearby towns, airports, hospitals and other destinations. The signs use colors, shapes, symbols and written messages to help drivers, cyclists and pedestrians read and understand the information.
