Regulatory Signs

Regulatory signs are used to control the actions of road users in the sense that they are legally required to take or not to take specific action as indicated by such signs. Failure to obey regulatory signs is an offence in terms of various acts, regulations, ordinances and by laws. When these signs appear on a yellow background, they are temporary signs.
