Road traffic signs regulations, guidance and images.

Contents

Road traffic signs, signals and road markings are methods for communicating with road users. They need to be simple and concise so people can understand them quickly. The Department for Transport produces regulations and guidance to make sure that traffic authorities use traffic signs and road markings correctly.

Regulations

The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 (TSRGD) as amended, prescribe the designs and conditions of use for traffic signs to be lawfully placed on or near roads in England, Scotland and Wales.

Guidance

The Department for Transport provides guidance to traffic authorities and their agents on the correct use of signs and road markings via a range of publications.
Local transport notes

Local transport notes summarise the latest and most important ideas about traffic management issues and provide guidance for local authorities.
Traffic advisory leaflets (TAL)

Traffic advisory leaflets provide information and guidance for using traffic equipment and implementing traffic regulations and policies.

Nothing in these guidance publications overrides the TSRGD.

Traffic signs authorisation database and traffic sign images

The TSRGD details every traffic sign and road marking prescribed for use in the UK and also stipulates the conditions under which each sign may be used.

Where there is no suitable prescribed sign, an application can be made to the Department for Transport for authorisation to use a specially designed non-prescribed sign which is not contained in the TSRGD.

‘Traffic signs images’ contains more than 600 traffic sign images in different formats. It’s intended mainly for media professionals to reproduce in printed matter, on screen or in other media.

‘Working drawings for traffic signs’ details the design of particular traffic signs from TSRGD and include some permitted variants. It’s intended for traffic sign professionals.
