Quality signs that last
There will be a lot of considerations to factor into the process of changing street signs across America. The Bush Administration set in place regulations related to traffic signs and street signs. Some of these changes will take place by January 2012, while others will be completed by January 2018.
The goal of these changes is to increase safety on the nation’s roadways and highways. Each city across the country is responsible for making these changes. They must comply with sign purchases that follow MUTCD or the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. Street signs fit under the umbrella of traffic control devices.
There are going to be specific changes to certain types of signs. Some of them will have changes to the size of their lettering. Letters will increase from 4 inches to 6 inches. Other signs will now include reflective lettering. The cost of these changes is something to consider, as well as, purchasing quality signs. Here are some things that city leaders need to remember about purchasing their traffic signs:
Look for bargain purchases
It doesn’t matter, whether you buy traffic signs online or not. Some companies are going to service small locations. Other companies may be able to cover an entire region. Finding signs that are reasonably priced is important. Bargain prices are absolutely critical for some of the financially challenged cities and towns. In many cases, this may mean getting estimates from various companies.
Diverse company offerings
Some sign companies are going to be more diverse than others. If you find a company that is involved with both ordering and manufacturing, you may discover a financial benefit. These companies are often able to provide customers with discounts. It is possible to see the diversity in the company through its products. You must find a company that can meet all of the regulations needed for traffic signs. This is one of the most important parts of this process.
Find quality materials
Simply purchasing street signs is not enough. You need to find signs that meet regulations and are of a good quality. Not all signs are the same, just as not all sign companies are the same. Poor quality signs will not last as long as those of better quality. This will normally have to do with the materials used in the making of signs. It may be necessary to pay a bit more for better signs that are durable.
