road awareness in paradise city ...
If you're out on the roads, you'll come across numerous road signs. Essentially, these are split into two types - regulatory and warning.
We have detailed below the various ones you'll come across and explained what they mean in English.
Unfortunately, signs do have a habit of changing in Thailand. The ones you see below are correct at time of writing.
There is, however, one sign that that you won't notice below and that's when there's been an accident or breakdown and drivers lay out branches from trees to warn oncoming traffic of forward obstacles/danger. Look out for these. Quite often they are not cleared away after the danger is past, nevertheless you should always expect the worst.
It is also worthwhile pointing out that upcoming roadworks are not given much prior warning, if indeed at all. You will not see 5/3/1km warning signs on highways. At best, you can hope for a couple of hundred meters warning which is not too helpful if you're coming over the brow of a hill or visibility is limited. Do be careful.
