Take Compliance Seriously

Compliance should come first this autumn when you shop for traffic safety equipment rental. All traffic control devices, whether it’s cones, barrels, barriers or signs, should comply with the Federal Highway Administration’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) along with any state agency requirements. Adhering to these regulations will decrease the possibility of worksite accidents and fines.
