Slow Warning Sign

Warning signs let you know that road changes are coming up on your drive. These can be permanent or temporary traffic hazards and obstacles. Let drivers know to Slow Down. Sometimes motorists forget they’re off the highway and are traveling in a residential area. Remind them, that 45 mph is not an appropriate speed where pedestrians are walking their dogs or children are playing in the streets.

Warning signs can warn you about:

merging lanes or added lanes
narrowing of the road
corners or changes in the direction of the road
highway and motorway entry and exits
crossings on the road for pedestrians, farm animals, or wildlife
roundabouts, stops, or giveways
changes to the road’s surface or condition, for example, road humps, unsealed roads, rain, hail or ice, or falling rocks.
Change in the road direction ahead
These warning signs let you know the road is going to change direction. You should drive with caution within the speed limit and follow the conditions of the road.

Change in the road direction ahead signs can show you how the road you are on will:

curve, have a sharp turn, or wind for a distance
have an approaching intersection or change in traffic direction
have a steep descent, dip, crest or incline
narrow because of a bridge
have a lane merging or starting
have a recommended exiting speed due to the road direction.
