Traffic signs

Who is responsible for traffic signs?

    • For the regulation of regulatory signs (no stopping, no driving, priority signs, stop signs)
  • Service Unit Road Administration - Traffic mirrors
    • For the installation of road signs, danger signs, etc.)
    • For the installation and maintenance of traffic signs

May I place regulatory signs on my private property?

Even on private, (generally accessible) areas, regulatory signs (e.g. no stopping, no driving, etc.) may only be placed if there is an ordinance from the authorityService Unit Road traffic and road law.. ), unless the areas would not even be usable for pedestrians. As soon as at least pedestrian traffic is possible and permitted, a traffic area is subject to the road traffic regulations.

The unauthorized installation of traffic signs is punishable by law. For example, if you want to mark a private parking space on the side of the road, instead of the circular traffic sign "Halting and parking prohibited", use a rectangular panel with this symbol and an addition such as "private" or "possession action". This applies analogously if you want to restrict traffic on a private access road, such as with a weight restriction.

Can I submit a proposal for a traffic regulation?

If you have a proposal for a traffic regulation (or its removal), please contact the Service Unit Road traffic and road law
