Traffic signs are different shapes to help drivers distinguish between different types of signs. For example, a circular sign would indicate a regulatory sign such as ‘Stop’ or ‘Yield’, while an octagonal sign would indicate a warning sign such as ‘Pedestrian Crossing’ or ‘Curve Ahead’. Traffic signs of different shapes also help drivers quickly identify and recognize the meaning of the sign even from a distance.
