Common Signs on the Road

On our way to Slippery Rock I saw some signs on the road that made me curious what those signs means so, i took pictures of them while the car was running.

These are common signs we see on the road which helps driver and pedestrian keep away from any accidents and traffic.

I took this signs in front the building of our old apartment. There is a school closer to our place and a playground for kids thats why they put signs like that for the drivers to slow down.
A stop sign is a traffic sign, usually erected at road junctions, that instructs drivers to stop and then to proceed only if the way ahead is clear.
Some traffic signs, such as the left-turn prohibition sign hanging from this gantry, are lit for better visibility, particularly at night or in inclement weather.
In road transportaton, a Yield (Canada, Ireland, and the United States) or give way traffic sign indicates that a driver of a vehicle must slow down and prepare to stop if necessary (usually while merging into traffic on another road) but does not need to stop if there is no reason to. A driver who has actually stopped in this situation is said to have yielded the right-of-way to through traffic on the main road. In contrast, a stop sign always requires a full stop. The first yield sign was installed in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was invented by Tulsan Clinton Riggs.

Tsang, off topic muna...ako tuplokers kay napotbol..wazzz nako panginabuhi..tikasan kaayo sila kay ingon give na sila sa ako ug payment karon end sa August mga $10.44 pero pag open nako karon sa ila site kay tingala lagi ko nga nawala man ako mga tuplokers, sus kay ila na man diay gitanggal. mura ra man sad diay na sila ug Google nga kung payment time na terminate dayon nila imo account then sila ra maka kwarta kay gibayaran gud sila sa advertisers. mga inahak, ilimos na lang nako na sa ila kay basig gipang gutom na sila...
