Playground Area Signs

What are they?

PlaygroundThe Playground Area sign is a warning device that may be used to indicate sections of roads adjoining public playgrounds, where the presence of children on, or near the road, would represent an unexpected hazard to the driver.

What are the issues?

It is important that the signs are used only in advance of public playgrounds that abut the roadway. These signs are not intended to be used in residential areas simply because children may, on a regular basis, play on or near a street even though there isn't a designated playground area. This is a common element on most residential streets and one that doesn't require advisory signage.
