REGULATORY TRAFFIC SIGNS

Regulatory signs show the course a driver must follow and an action they are required to take or forbidden to take.

They are generally circular and have a red border and black symbols or letters on a white background. Mandatory regulatory signs that indicate the direction traffic must take at junctions are blue and white.
