Object Marker Signs

In 1997 in Ontario, I took my school bus license. As part-and-parcel of taking your school bus license at the time you take a defensive driving course.

I thought, "no big deal; I've been driving truck for five years - how hard can that be?"

Went down to Fanshawe College, the instructor strode into the class, retrieves a piece of chalk, scribbles on the blackboard: name the 4 signs that warn us of hazards and obstructions on the roadway?

Like everybody else in the classroom, I was stumped. I didn't know the answer.


These hazard obstruction signs are every where on our roadways. These signs warn drivers of hazards and obstructions and on which side they can safely pass.

The signs that warn you of hazards and obstructions on the roadway are rectangular in shape. They have black hash marks on a yellow background and they are probably the most prolific signs on our roadways.

This sign tells you to pass on the right. This sign tells you to pass on the left, and the one with the chevron tells you to pass on the left or the right.

These signs are on the end of bridge abutments, traffic islands, signs, concrete barriers. Anything that you could potentially run into on our roadways, these signs tell you on which side to pass.

Reading the Sign

As well, if you don't know which side of the hash mark to pass on, think of somebody pouring a kettle of water onto the hash mark and the side that the water runs off on is the side on which you pass.

 

Warning signs warn you of hazards and obstructions and fixed objects on our roadways that you could potentially run into.

They're prolific; they're almost everywhere. You will now see them everywhere.

Constructions signs warn of temporary conditions along the roadway. These signs have an orange background and black writing and symbols.

The other sign that the instructor at Fanshawe College in 1997 considered hazards and obstructions signs were construction signs, but those are for another video.
