Traffic Sign Use
You should always refer to your local DOT guidelines and city requirements when installing traffic control devices on public or private property. Fifteen years ago the Congress of the United States acknowledged the importance of nighttime visibility of road signs and markings as important safety tools. The 1993 DOT Appropriations Act stated that the "Secretary of Transportation shall revise the MUTCD to include a standard for a minimum level of retroreflectivity that must be maintained for traffic signs and pavement markings which apply to all roads open to public travel." The Federal Highway Administration's Minimum Levels of Retroreflectivity Ruling for traffic signs went into effect on January 22, 2008.

Summary of MUTCD Revisions

From January 22, 2008 (the effective date of the ruling) agencies have:

  • Four years to implement and continue using an assessment or management method to maintain traffic sign retroreflectivity at or above the established minimum levels.
  • Seven years for replacement of regulatory, warning and ground-mounted signs (except street name signs) that fail to meet the established minimum levels.
  • Ten years for replacement of street name signs and overhead guide signs that fail to meet the established minimum levels.

Summary of the Minimum Maintained Retroreflectivity Levels Table

  • White copy on overhead guide signs must be made from prismatic sheeting
  • White copy on ground mounted street name signs cannot be made from Type I sheeting, Type III prismatic or higher is recommended  
  • Warning signs (black on yellow or orange) cannot be made from Type I sheeting, Type III prismatic or higher is recommended 
  • Regulatory signs (black on white) must retain a minimum retroreflectivity level of 50 cd/lx/m2 (while use of Type I sheeting with an initial retro reflectivity value of 70 cd/lx/m2 is allowed, sign life will be shorter and may result in poor life cycle value), Type III prismatic or higher is recommended
  • Stop signs (white on red) have a minimum contrast ratio of > 3:1 (white reflectivity + red reflectivity) (older stop signs especially south-facing signs are at risk of noncompliance due to ink fading)
