Traffic signs and markings are intricate traffic control devices that by simple display are used to regulate, warn and guide traffic on all streets and highways. In the interest of uniformity throughout the United States, all signs and markings should follow the accepted standards of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

The traffic control signal is a type of highway traffic device by which traffic is alternately directed to stop and permitted to proceed. The traffic signals are valuable devices for the control of vehicles and pedestrians and assigning the right-of-way to the various traffic movements.

No other device has such a daily impact on virtually every citizen, as does the common, ever present traffic signal. The trip to work is punctuated by stops at traffic signals; school children wait for the traffic signal to interrupt traffic so they can cross the busy thoroughfare. Drivers place their physical safety and that of their passengers confidently (sometimes too confidently) in the signals ability to give them the right-of-way.
