From Signs to Barriers, Maintaining Traffic Safety


A Canadian firm, Reliance Foundry, provides a web treatise on highway traffic control devices.

“Excellent traffic control,” Reliance explains, “is important from circulation to signage. Thankfully, most facilities manage slower speeds than those on public roads and highways, which lowers risk. On the other hand, people and cars may be more likely to share the road with pedestrians who may cross erratically through parking lots. In a parking lot, children are more likely to be on the road surface. Additionally, traffic patterns may not be as well established or understood. Facilities can take a page from public roadways and install traffic control devices to keep users safe.”

Reliance goes on to cover the options, from signs to road markings and barriers.
