Course Synopsis:

Traffic control devices are defined as all signs, signals, markings, and other devices used to regulate, warn, or guide traffic, placed on, over, or adjacent to a street, highway, pedestrianfacility, or bikeway by authority of a public agency having jurisdiction. The Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) is incorporated by reference in 23 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 655, Subpart F and is recognized as the national standard for all traffic control devices installed on any street, highway, or bicycle trail open to public travel in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 109(d) ad 402(a).

The need for uniform standards was recognized long ago, and the MUTCD is a result of much research and several editions since 1935 in order to establish and facilitate those uniform standards.  The U.S. Secretary of Transportation has decreed that traffic control devices on all streets and highways open to public travel shall be in substantial conformance with the Standards issued or endorsed by the FHWA.

Specific Service signs provide road users with business identification and directional information for services and for eligible attractions.  Specific Services signs are normally limited to areas primarily rural in character or to areas where adequate sign spacing can be maintained. This course provides specific information and criteria regarding Specific Service Signs.
