These are various road signs in Kenya for your Safety. Safety is a familiar word when talking about machinery, equipment, and vehicles.
I remember we were taught how to cross the road in the lower primary. We learned the meaning of the traffic lights (colors) and what to do before crossing the street.
It was like this: Look right, look left and look right again, then cross the road. I loved how we sang it out; beautiful memories.
Types of Road Signs in Kenya
Roads are an excellent infrastructure: ways can be helpful and evil. Safety is therefore of importance to us all, pedestrians and motorists alike. This information may be availed to licensed drivers, but it isn’t general knowledge of pedestrians.
When you look through the road signs manual, you will notice that they are classified into different categories.
1. What are Class A or Regulatory Signs?
Red signs contain symbols prohibiting indicated actions, while blue signs prescribe necessary decisive action.
2. Which signs are Warning Signs?
What are Informative road signs?
These are less demanding (other than signs for parking and hospitals) due to the proliferation of micro hotels, restaurants, and other services.
Roads are to be used with caution by all road users. If you look at our cars section, you will learn quite as much about cars. But then what next? Take the necessary measures to know all the road signs to be more aware.
Ensure your safety and that of fellow road users by being informed.
