COMPREHENSIVE SIGNS

Comprehensive signs are regulatory signs which indicate to drivers that they are about to enter a road or area which is governed by a comprehensive set of rules and regulations, which they should adhere to.  Comprehensive signs are usually mounted on poles or structures next to the roadway.

EXAMPLE: temporary comprehensive sign

Shape:  Rectangular

Colours:  Blue sign boards with red borders and white symbols on the sign.

All comprehensive signs have a temporary version with a yellow background, black symbol and red border.  Temporary comprehensive signs would be displayed where circumstances on the road have changed temporarily and have equal importance to that of the standard versions of comprehensive signs.
