List of Road Signs in Kenya You Need To Know

These are various road signs in Kenya for your safety. Safety is a familiar word when we talk about machinery, equipment and vehicles. In the lower primary, I remember we were taught how to cross the road. We learnt the meaning of the traffic lights (colours), and what to do before we cross the street.

It was something like this: Look right, look left and look right again then go-ahead to cross the road. I loved how we sang it out, beautiful memories.

Roads are an excellent infrastructure: ways can be useful and evil. Safety is therefore of importance to us all, pedestrians and motorists alike. This information may be availed to licensed drivers, but it isn’t general knowledge of pedestrians.

When you look through the road signs manual, you will notice that they are classified in different categories.

1. What are Class A or Regulatory Signs?

These are mandatory signs that you have to obey. They are circular and enclose either a blue background containing white symbols or a red border around a white background inlaid with red symbols.

Red signs contain symbols that prohibit indicated actions while blue signs prescribe necessary decisive action.

2. Which signs are Warning Signs?

These give notice of a hazard that lays ahead and in a way, request that you approach cautiously. These are also called Class B signs.

What are Informative road signs?

These types of road signs in Kenya provide supplementary information about services and conveniences available along the road, such as petrol stations, parking, hotels, restaurants, hospitals and the like.

These are less demanding (other than signs for parking and hospitals) due to the proliferation of micro hotels, restaurants and other services.

Roads are to be used with caution by all road users. If you take a look at our cars section, you will learn quite as much about cars. But then what next? Take necessary measures to learn all the road signs, so you are more aware.

Ensure your safety and that of fellow road users by being informed.

  1. This is quiet good.

    However it would be helpful for revision if you put explanations/description of each sign as you have done for class A.
