Traffic-sign images

Traffic-sign images for reproduction in printed matter, on screen or in other media.

About the images

We have made available more than 600 traffic-sign images from those in the publication Know your traffic signs. They are grouped in the same categories.

The images are intended mainly for media professionals to reproduce in printed matter, on screen or in other media.

The images are not intended for the use of traffic-sign professionals, who should refer to working drawings, chapters of the Traffic signs manual and other relevant sources on GOV.UK.

Please use the images responsibly.

Terms and conditions

Reproducing images of traffic signs

Traffic signs are Crown copyright. They are part of legislation (Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002, often referred to as TSRGD). The numbers in the image file names relate to the TSRGD numbering.

You may reproduce traffic-sign images free of charge and without having to seek permission, but you must reproduce them accurately and not in a misleading context (eg not on roadside billboards where they could mislead drivers). You should also include a statement that these images are Crown copyright.

Please read the fuller conditions in the Open Government Licence.

Images in JPG format

JPG (JPEG) images are for printing or screen use, but not at any size, as they have a limited resolution.

Images in EPS format

EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) images are for use with professional design software and for printing at any size because they carry vector and other information.
