The General Directorate for Transport (DGT) had to change some signs on the highways to make driving directions clearer. These changes have come after 18 years All traffic directions remain unchanged. The Home Office made this decision in light of the need to make it more identifiable and, in some cases, more inclusive. The Royal Decree that put these changes into effect was passed earlier this year and has been in effect across the country since June.
Two of the new signs can already be seen on the streets but will disappear gradually when new sections of track are built or when the old ones deteriorate and can be replaced. However, it is believed that they will need to be changed for more than 100,000 signs.
These are the two modified signals
First of all, we have a sign that indicates danger or risk in road traffic. It’s the P-33 hint that warns against poor visibility at certain points on the road. The aim of this change is to make the signal more recognizable for motorists, especially in environmental zones, as these two beacons could previously be easily confused due to their great similarity. The old sign showed a car surrounded by dots, a description that wasn’t entirely intuitive but became clearer as the car approached a fog bank represented by horizontal lines.
The second character is P-35, whichch refers to a section that presents a hazard due to due to frequent lane changes. The placement of this beacon has started in areas where lane changes occur frequently, such as on freeways and expressways with many on-off exits. The new presentation includes two cars with two crossing arrows thatdriver that he is approaching an area with multiple forks.
