De-restriction signs are regulatory signs which are used to indicate that a restriction, a command, a regulation or a set of rules no longer applies.  De-restriction signs are identified by a large red cross (X) across a regulatory sign, meaning that the regulation sign is not applicable anymore.

EXAMPLE: temporary de-restriction signs

Shape:  Various.  It takes on the shape of the original sign used.

Colours:  Red cross (X) over the original sign used.

All de-restriction signs have a temporary version with a yellow background.  Temporary signs would be displayed along with a temporary primary regulatory sign where circumstances on the road have changed temporarily and have equal importance to that of the standard versions.
