Road hump sign legislation

When placing your hump road signs, it is important to be aware of the current laws and regulations governing road hump placement and speed bump warning signs. Road humps are used on both private and public roads to control traffic speeds and reduce accidents in specific areas.

If your private road has speed humps, or if your construction site has road humps or an uneven road surface, it is important to make sure that there are clearly displayed road hump signs. When placing your signs, it is important to refer to the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2016 to ensure that you are correctly placing your hump road signs.

Placing road hump signs

When placing road hump signs, it is important to consider visibility for all drivers and cyclists using the road, as the signs should be placed in the most visible locations possible. For private roads, there are no legal requirements for placing signs. However, you are expected to place signs in such a way that adequately warns drivers and cyclists of road humps.

When placing your signs, it is important to take the environmental conditions into consideration as outdoor signs, or signs in exposed areas, may need to be cleaned or replaced more frequently. Also, if the sign is not placed in a well-lit area, you should consider how reflective the sign’s surface is and opt for a more highly reflective option.

Frequently Asked Questions

What materials are road hump signs made of?

Road hump signs come in a variety of materials to suit various locations and durability needs. Some sign materials such as aluminium are extremely durable and ideal for tough, outdoor environments, while other signs such as those made of vinyl are more appropriate for indoor environments such as parking garages. Below are just a few of the materials that our speed hump signs are made of:

  • Plastic – many of our signs, including the Speed Bumps Ahead sign, come in a variety of plastic options, including Rigid Plastic, Plastic and Polycarbonate. These sturdy plastic signs all meet the BS EN 12899-1:2007 requirements and can be easily installed in both indoor and outdoor locations.

  • Aluminium and Aluminium Extra Tough – signs such as the Uneven Road Surface sign come in a variety of materials, including Aluminium and Aluminium Extra Tough. These aluminium signs are very durable and great for outdoor locations as they are highly reflective and do not rust.
