The Federal Government Now Requires Traffic Signs To Meet
Minimum Reflectivity Standards
The FHWA expects that the reflectivity levels and
maintenance methods will help to promote
safety and mobility on the nation's streets and highways.
In January 2008, the Federal Government
ruled that Type 1 (Engineer Grade) sheeting is not to be used on many
standard MUTCD traffic signs. The ruling is slightly confusing in that
Type 1 will meet the standards on some signs and on hundreds of other
signs it will not. Below are two examples of this.
Type 1 DOES NOT meet the standards for a black on yellow curve
Type 1 DOES meet the standards for
a black on white sign
Street name signs are also required to be more reflective and
larger in size in order to meet the new standards.
For street signs you would need HIA Type III Prismatic High Intensity.
Because of the
complexity of these new specifications, CheapStreetSigns.com
suggests the following guidelines in order to simplify the new
-If it is a parking control sign (No Parking, Disabled, Parking, etc) we
suggest using Type 1 reflective
-If the sign directs traffic (One
Way, Dead End, etc) we suggest moving up
to a Prismatic High Intensity Type III or higher reflective sign.
Ruling Also Impacts Traffic Signs on Private Property.
All roads and parking areas open to public
traffic are also subject to these new standards. Included are
shopping areas, apartment complexes, office buildings, sports
facilities, etc. All signs in these areas need to be mounted to
the proper height (typically 7 ft to the bottom of the sign) and
meet appropriate MUTCD reflective standards.

Limit Exposure To Tort Liability
Now that this regulation has
been passed, if someone is injured or loses their life in an
area where the traffic signs do not meet Federal standards,
there will be a huge exposure to tort liability.
- Type I, II and III white sheeting should
not be used on overhead guide signs
(white on green)
- Type I sheeting should not be used on warning signs (black on
- Replacement of regulatory, warning, and ground-mounted guide
(except street name) within seven years of effective date.
- Replacement of street name signs and overhead guide within ten
years of effective date.
- Implementation and continued use of an assessment or
management method that is designed to maintain traffic sign
retro-reflectivity at or above the established minimum levels
within four years of effective date.

All-Seeing Car Reads Road Signs For You
BBy Matthew Phenix
As cars become smarter than the people driving them and do more of the
things humans should be doing for themselves —
checking blind spots,
watching for lane departures, anticipating collisions — it was only a
matter of time before a car started
reading road signs.
"Traffic Sign Recognition and Lane Departure Warning" system available

only Opel scans the road ahead at 30
frames per second to read road signs and tell you when you're wandering
The most innovative aspect of the system is
the road sign recognition processor, which can read road signs as far as
The system uses two processors and a camera -- called, appropriately,
the Front Camera System -- mounted near the rear-
view mirror. One
processor identifies familiar shapes, symbols and digits on common road
signs and conveys the information to
the driver via a digital display in
the gauge cluster. The other alerts the driver when he or she strays
from the lane.

assisting drivers without reducing their level of

managing director of GM Europe Engineering. "That means the system gives
but it doesn't intervene."
We're not entirely sure why GM thinks it's easier to read a speed limit
sign on a tiny display between your speedometer and
tachometer than on a
big road sign. Dement says "a car that can see and warn the driver well
in advance of potential hazards is
another important step in our
long-term accident prevention strategy.” GM Europe also is developing
communication systems that allow cars to exchange
information about their position and speed.
