This course serves as the foundational course in a series of new LTAP courses about traffic signs. The course will begin with discussing the function and purpose of signs from a more philosophical perspective; that of the driving task and how signs affect driving and road safety.  After a review of the national and state standards that govern signs, the course will return to describe the function and purpose of signs, but from a more technical perspective.  This technical section is the longest section of the course, and will follow the MUTCD, Part 2, Chapter 2A, giving participants a basic understanding of the information available to them in this important document.  After reviewing the design and placement of signs, the course will move to a brief section on traffic signs for low-volume roadways, and then finally review the responsibilities associated with maintaining safe signing in your municipality.
Intended Audience: This course is intended for local government officials responsible for the installation, maintenance, and inspection of traffic signs, roadway safety, and asset management.  This includes traffic technicians, public works directors, supervisors, roadmasters, and crew responsible for traffic signs.
