Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can the posted speed limit on our road be reduced to slow down the speeding drivers?
It is a common myth that posting slower speed limit signs forces drivers to slow down. National research has shown that the prevailing traffic conditions and the type of road, not the posted speed limit, influence drivers.
Traffic engineering studies take into account, speed at which most drivers travel, road design, road conditions, accident records, and many other factors.
Q. What is the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD)?
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) publishes the Manual on Union Traffic Control Devices (MUTD), which contains all national design, application, and placement standards for traffic control devices. The purpose of these devices, which includes signs, signals, and pavement markings, is to promote highway safety, efficiency, and uniformity so that traffic can move efficiently on the Nation's streets and highways.
