DEFINITION OF ROAD SIGNS

A road or traffic sign is a sign giving information or instructions to road users.

Traffic signs tell you about traffic regulations, special hazards and other road conditions, construction areas speed limits, etc. You should not only be familiar with each of the signs, you should recognize the special shapes and colors.

TYPES OF ROAD SIGNS IN NIGERIA

There are three kinds of road signs in Nigeria.

REGULATORY: They are mostly circular in shape and are of two types. Those with red and yellow circles are prohibitive signs. Those with blue circles but no red border are mandatory signs. They give positive instructions and are regulatory signs.

INFORMATIVE: They are usually rectangular in shape and provide guidance information. The stop sign is a prohibitive sign. It tells you to come to a complete stop before making another move. Proceed when it is safe to do so.

WARNING: Warning Signs are usually triangular in shape, with red perimeter. The only one warning sign with inverted triangle means yield or give way.
