Replacing Traffic Signs
There are approximately 85,000 traffic signs within the City. The performance target for inspection and possible replacement of these signs is 8,500 per year (700 per month). They are inspected on a routine basis and replaced if found to be damaged, vandalized, or foliage covered. This is done to ensure that traffic signs have good reflective qualities for nighttime driving. The visual quality of traffic signs have a direct relationship on the frequency of vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle crashes that are the leading cause for fatalities, severe injuries and property damage. Signs are replaced to enhance public safety.
