Designing your own road signs for a housing association or private use is a simple and clear way of conveying a message to road users. It can involving anything from a car park or STOP sign to a “Private road” or “Drive slowly” sign. A reflective sign is visible even in dark traffic situations.
These signs are often inspired by classic traffic signs in terms of design and colour. It can sometimes be best to have different text and images on the sign, making it more unique and more likely to be noticed by drivers.
These traffic signs warn of something, so that road users can increase their concentration and reduce their speed. They include “Animal crossing” signs that warn of particular animals such as hedgehogs, wild boar or frogs in the vicinity. Warning signs often have a red border, yellow background and triangular shape.
A prohibition sign indicates a demand or request. They can refer, for instance, to a requirement for protective clothing, permitted driving manner or parking times. This type of road sign often has a white border, a blue background and is usually round.
A clear information sign can highlight locations, flea markets or shops. A professional-looking road sign to convey information often has a white border, a blue background and white text.
However, when buying a road sign, it should be noted that it is illegal to put up signs that are too similar to official signs on public roads. If there is a risk that drivers will lose concentration or be misled, the signs may be outright dangerous.
