Triangle Warning Road Signs For Sale
Permanent Warning Road Signs - Post Mounted
Traffic warning signs form one of the most commonly seen permanent road signs. These are mostly triangular signs with a red border. Their primary function is as the name suggests to provide a warning. This could be in the form of an upcoming unusual road feature or potential distraction.
By warning the driver prior to the obstacle the risk of accidents is reduced. Often these signs that include symbols will be accompanied by a supplementary plate which will give further details. These details may indicate how far away the hazard is, or for how long it persists.
Although these warning triangle road signs are mostly seen on main roads, they can also be found in car parks and industrial estates. Warning signs indicating the position of speed bumps, or pedestrian crossings are very common in these locations.

This sign depicting an aircraft at what appears to be an unhealthy angle is not a warning to expect an air disaster, but a warning that low flying aircraft may cause excessive noise, and prove to be a distraction.
An exclamation mark, it is obviously a warning, but the sign includes no further details. Thankfully this sign is always accompanied by a supplementary plate such as “hidden dip” to give further information.
This sign has no image at all, what it does indicate is that there is a junction with a give way or stop line ahead. It is accompanied by a distance indication.
Other Sign Types
These permanent signs give information indicating how far a junction is away in the form of countdown markers. They are all rectangular and can in some instances feature regulatory signs within them.
These regulate the types of traffic, for example, restricting heavy goods vehicles from certain routes. They may also prohibit manoeuvres such as U-turns, or set speed limits.
These signs include place names, or directions to nearby attractions, business parks or industrial estates. They will sometimes feature a map.
