Warning Signs

Warning signs are used to alert drivers to hazardous conditions on or adjacent to the roadway. These signs indicate a need for extra caution by road users. They may call for a reduction in speed or other manoeuvers in the interest of their own safety and that of other road users, pedestrians and animals. advisory speed limits, which may be displayed on supplementary plates below warning signs, are not enforceable; they merely alert road users to suggested safe speeds for potentially hazardous conditions at specific locations on the road. the violation of advisory speeds, however, may be indicative of negligence or even reckless driving.
