Road Signage:-

  • Traffic signs or road signs are signs erected at the

  side of or above roads to provide information to road

  users. The earliest signs were simple wooden or stone

  milestones. Later, signs with directional arms were introduced.

  •   With traffic volumes increasing since the 1930s,

  many countries have adopted pictorial signs or otherwise simplified and standardized their signs to facilitate international travel where language

  differences would create barriers, and in general to help enhance traffic safety. Such pictorial signs use symbols (often silhouettes) in place of words

  and are usually based on international protocols. Such signs were first developed in Europe, and have been adopted by most countries to varying

  degrees.
