Regulatory Road Signs - Permanent Post Mounted

Regulatory permanent traffic signs are seen on every road in the UK. They are mostly seen in the ‚Äúprohibitive‚ÄĚ format as a circular sign with a red outer ring. A great example of a prohibitive sign and perhaps the most commonly seen variant are speed limit signs.

Sometimes referred to as ‚Äúsigns giving orders‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúinstruction road signs‚ÄĚ regulatory signs do not always state what cannot be done, but can often give positive instructions. When giving positive instructions they will usually have a blue background, as is the case with a one-way arrow indicating the direction traffic must flow.

Our range of regulatory traffic signs is available to buy online or over the phone. We offer a selection of sizes, designs and even reflectivity grades to ensure you get the right sign for the job.
