Markings, Signs, Signals:

Warning signs may enhance safety in special situations.

Traffic control devices, including a variety of pavement markings, signs, and traffic signals, are used by traffic engineers to improve safety and access for bicyclists. Besides traditional treatments such as installation of a traffic signal, innovative treatments are also being installed and evaluated, including separate bicycle signal heads and bicycle and pedestrian crosswalk signals, sometimes known as toucan signals. School speed zone and traffic control devices may also be implemented to improve safety for children bicycling and walking to school along designated routes.
