Traffic Signs

Traffic Signs give you important information about the laws, warn you about dangerous conditions and help you find your way.  Signs use different symbols, colours and shapes for easy identification.

Different Signs have different levels of of legal status, enforcement regime and penalties for violation, depending on their individual governing authority.  Some signs are enforceable directly under specific sections of the Highway Traffic Act (HTA) or other legislation, others under more general provisions of the HTA and its Regulations and still others only under duly enacted by-laws.

The City of Cornwall is responsible for the maintenance of the Traffic signs throughout the City.
