How Post Reflectors Improve Visibility of Traffic Signs

Increase Visibility of Traffic Signs

In order to ensure the highest level of vehicle and pedestrian safety there is a wide range of traffic signage required by the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). These include familiar signs like STOP and SPEED LIMIT to signs not included in the manual but often placed on roads like BLIND CHILD AREA and various NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH signs. While each sign’s placement is carefully evaluated by road departments in conducting a safe flow of traffic, some signs are more important to highlight than others. Red post reflectors are a popular way to highlight Stop signs—particularly in areas with an obstructed view or an intersection that has experienced multiple accidents.

Post reflectors are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and materials that are made to withstand the elements and provide excellent day and night time visibility. Reflectors serve an array of applications that include but are not limited to:

Traffic Reflectors – Highlight Existing Traffic Signage

Utility Reflectors – Indicate Utility Boxes and Posts

Mailbox/Driveway Reflectors – Mark Mailboxes and Driveways

Decorative Reflectors – Cover Posts for a Sleeker Look in Neighborhoods
