Signage on the highways is heavily regulated. This is to ensure consistency for all road users in order to maximise effectiveness by assisting in quick recognition.
Traffic sign regulations also make available to highway authorities, a set of standard signs and saves them the labour of design. It aids the courts in giving the same meaning to standard signs.
Clear and efficient signing is an essential part of highway and traffic engineering and a road with poor signing or with badly maintained signs is an unsatisfactory road. The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 (TSRGD) set out the rules for traffic signs, traffic lights and road markings that can be used in England, Scotland and Wales.
