If getting around your community is as chaotic and confusing as the famous Abbott and Costello “Who’s on First?” comedy routine, it might be time to consider some well-planned and placed road signs. When done correctly, they help your residents and guests avoid confusion that could result in accidents. Pavement markings are an important part of keeping a property safe, whether it is a shopping mall, RV park, restaurant, office building, medical complex or other type of business.
Here’s another good reason for having proper road signs and pavement markings – it is usually required by law. That includes not only having them installed but maintaining them. In addition, you could find yourself involved in a lawsuit if someone is injured because of improper or missing road signs.
Road signs and pavement markings do more than reduce confusion; they also provide safety in a community. One of the best ways to control speeding, for example, is with speed bumps, effectively-spaced stop signs, and speed limit signs. You should also use specialty road signs for unique situations, such as “children playing” or to alert drivers that a blind or hearing-impaired resident could be present. Well-defined crosswalks with accompanying stop signs are critical for protecting pedestrians.
