One of the most important things for drivers to understand is the road safety signs. You might have spotted these different signages across the road as a passenger. However, now that you’re the one behind the wheels, you have to understand and abide by the road safety signs. This post lists out ten road safety signs and what they mean.


The stop sign is pretty self-explanatory. If you see a stop sign ahead of you, you should stop the vehicle at that place. Several reasons, including accidents, renovations, and road barriers are why the traffic system uses the stop sign.

Speed Limit

During your journey, you might spot signs that hold numbers such as “25, 50, or 60.” You might be wondering what they indicate. These numbers are the speed limit that the drivers should follow on that route. Failing to stick to the mentioned speed level results in challans and payment of fines.

Dangerous Dip

The dangerous dip is a safety road sign you might not spot very frequently. This road signage implies that there is a dip ahead on the route. This safety sign alerts you beforehand to tread carefully.

Pedestrian Crossing

Pedestrians are one of the most important things to consider while maintaining road safety. Whenever you come across this road safety sign, you should slow down or stop the vehicle and allow the pedestrians to cross the road.

Falling Rocks

It is not every day that you encounter the falling rocks safety sign. This road safety sign is frequently used in locations prone to landslides or are undergoing some maintenance work. You’ll notice this safety sign during extreme climates.

Men at Work

This is a road safety sign generally used in sites facing construction work. The road sign lets you know that you should reroute since it is not safe for your vehicle to pass.

School Ahead

The school ahead sign is present if the street in question houses a school compound. The school ahead sign alerts you to drive carefully and with minimal honking.

Left/Right-Hand Curve

There are left-hand and right-hand curve signage on the roads that indicate a curve approaching the route. You should manoeuvre your vehicle accordingly and take a slower speed level.

Steep Ascent

You’ll find the steep ascent usually in hilly and mountain areas. The steep ascent road safety sign notifies you to prepare your car to climb a steep road ahead.

Loose Gravel

The loose gravel is not a road safety sign that you’ll be able to spot in regular well-built roads. This signage is helpful in hilly paths where there might be loose gravel or earth that keeps falling.

These road signs are essential to maintain road safety. Every vehicle on the road must abide by them.
