Make wise sign purchases
City and town leaders across America are going to be purchasing street signs in the near future. Regulations set in place by the Bush Administration have led to these purchases. These regulations require changes that will hopefully lead to safer roadways and highways. Some changes will be completed by January 2012. There are other changes set to occur by January 2018.
The changes of traffic signs and road signs must follow guidelines found in MUTCD or the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. Street signs fit into the category of traffic control devices. One of the most important considerations in this process is the cost associated with purchasing signs.
Larger cities like New York City will be responsible for more signs than smaller locations. In fact, this city will most likely spend more than $27 million to meet regulations. Cash strapped communities are struggling financially. It is important that these cities find sign companies that can help them to comply at a reasonable cost.
Compare sign products
There are many different sign companies to choose from. Local companies may have the products that you need. Larger companies should be considered even if they are in a different city. It is possible to buy traffic signs online in most cases. Comparing the products offered by individual companies is the best way to purchase. This will help you to ensure that you are complying with regulations.
Shop for bargains
The pricing of street signs certainly factor into these purchases. Although bargains are very important, so are quality signs. Not all signs are made with the same grade materials. Cities will need to purchase signs that will be durable and long-lasting. Bargain shopping should be down by comparing similar products as well.
Are changes available?
The sign company that you hire must be able to provide changes to your signs. In some instances, there may simply be corrections made to signs. Reflective lettering on speed limit signs and larger lettering sizes are two categories to consider. Companies that cannot accommodate the changes that you need should not be considered.
Because of the cost of these signs many cities will be making last minute purchases. It is important to find out what delivery policy a company has. You must also factor in the amount of time required to deliver signs and to put them into position. Timely deliveries will be greatly appreciated in this process.
