You may be familiar with this sign. This is one of the regulatory signs! That means that it’s a law and it’s enforced. The no parking sign means that no parking is permitted at all in that selected area. It’s a white square sign with a bold and large “P” and a red circle and slash through it. If you spot this sign, you better find somewhere else to park your ride.
Another example of a regulatory sign is the No U-turn sign. The No U-turn sign helps indicate that you’re unable to complete a u-turn at that intersection. Not only will you break the law by making a u-turn, it’s also very risky! The No U-turn sign is a white square with a u-shaped arrow with a red circle and slash across the arrow. However, if you come across the same sign without the red circle and slash, you ARE permitted to make a u-turn.
If you turn into a road that has a diamond shaped yellow sign that reads “DEAD END”, you’re entering a dead end. This is a warning sign that is telling you there is no other outlet from this road. The only way out is to turn back around.
Another example of a warning sign is the railroad crossing sign. This sign is to let you know you’re approaching a railroad. It’s a yellow-circled shaped sign with a large black “X” in the middle with two “R’s” on the side. If you spot this sign proceed with caution. Speeding through railroads can damage your tires.
