In areas where children and students are present, safety for everyone is the highest priority. Unfortunately, today is a time when people are continuously surrounded by distraction. Whether it is a smartphone receiving alerts or music blaring out of a car radio—it can be hard to avoid the commotion going on in a vehicle while driving.
But when you are in a school zone, the chance of a casualty occurring increases immensely. Why? There is slowed traffic, cars stopping and people out of their vehicles—just to name a few.
That is why it so important for school zones to be clearly marked with visible and readable signage. Drivers need to be warned to slow down and keep their eyes open for pedestrians, other vehicles and bicyclists.
Dornbos Sign & Safety, Inc. sells a wide selection of high quality school signs ideal for every school zone in America. Read on to learn more about our highly visible school zone signs.

When a school zone is designated under state or local statute, certain signs must be installed at specific areas near and around the school. For example, a school zone sign must be placed at the beginning points of a school zone to indicate that it is a designated school zone. The best way to ensure traffic control in school zones is to use uniform signage within every school zone.
The Importance of Visibility
The first step towards achieving orderly traffic near schools is to install signage that directs drivers and pedestrians in the area of where to go and what to do/not do. If signs aren’t present, you can’t really expect people to follow “the rules”. When purchasing signs, it is important that they are:
