- 18 x 24" - The minimum MUTCD compliant size, but should only be used on low volume roadways
- 24 x 30" - The standard size to be used on most single lane conventional public roadways
Which Material Do I Choose?
- Available in 3 MUTCD compliant reflective materials (see materials tab below for full details):
- Engineering grade (Type I) - The most economical choice and is best suited for parking lots and low volume roads
- High Intensity Prismatic (Type IV) - The best value based on reflective performance, durability, and price
- Diamond Grade Prismatic (Type IX) - The best choice for superior reflectivity and public roadway usage.

SafetySign.com’s advanced printing process undergoes a stringent cross-hatching test. This specifically tests the adhesion and resistance to separation of the inks from the sign. In testing, a sample from the printing process is scored and covered in adhesive tape. The tape is removed and the sample assessed for adhesion quality.
We use a three-stage process to test all of our printing processes. We print our signs using only the processes that pass all three stages, giving you the highest quality signage possible.
The text is printed in HGEPIXymbols font.
The Speed Limit 5 MPH Sign from SafetySign.com uses these fonts because they are used on all signs from the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). These fonts are easy to read in daytime and nighttime conditions, and they are still legible no matter what version of the typeface is being used on the sign.
