There are several different sign posts to choose from based on the type of job you are pursuing. Safety Signal carries a variety of post for your need. When choosing a sign post, consider if the job is a permanent D.O.T. job, a small permanent job or a temporary. Both, Permanent D.O.T. signs and Temporary Construction signs require the use of a "break-away system" to provide safety to a vehicle if a collision occurs. Therefore, the sign post "breaks-away" from the scab driven in the ground and allows for less damages to a vehicle.
