Discover what traffic control signs are, how they can help Texas businesses and properties, what they look like, and how to use them effectively.

What Are Traffic Control Signs?

Traffic control signs are a type of outdoor safety sign. They can help to keep everybody safe, not just drivers. If you manage a Texas business or property with a parking lot or a private road, you can install traffic control signs to enable the safe and efficient flow of traffic.

These signs are most often made of metal, especially aluminum. They can be installed on top of a slender pole or beam, or onto an exterior wall. They typically display text and/or easy-to-understand graphics. A traffic control sign might communicate any of the following:

  • Stop
  • Yield
  • Pedestrian Crossing
  • Maximum Speed Limit
  • Proceed with Caution
  • Road Work/Construction Ahead
  • Speed Bump
  • Detour
  • Road Curve Ahead
  • Do Not Enter
  • Authorized Personnel Only
  • One Way
  • Railroad Crossing
  • Animal Crossing
  • And more

The Benefits Of Traffic Control Signs

Traffic control signs can increase safety and lower insurance rates. They can also contribute to a more enjoyable property or experience because people don’t feel the need to dart out of the way of moving cars. You can use a sign to remind people to drive slowly, to be alert for pedestrians, where speed bumps and parking spots are, to inform them about construction, and more.

Parking signs can also be considered a type of traffic control sign. With a parking sign you can remind people that certain spots are only for customers of your business, residents of the property you manager, or for staff. You can also post time limits for your parking spots.

Where To Install Traffic Control Signs?

For any sign to be effective, it needs to be visible. Ensure that there is sufficient street or parking lot lighting so your signs can be seen in the dark. It’s also important that your traffic control signs are ADA compliant so people with impaired vision can still read them (and so you don’t get fined).
