The Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada (MUTCDC) is an essential tool for all professionals involved in traffic management and control. It provides optimum standards and preferred methods in the design, dimensions and application of devices for the control of traffic and the provision of information to drivers and other road users.
The MUTCDC provides information and diagrams on traffic signs, signals, pavement markings and temporary conditions. This 2014 version replaces the previous version from 1998.
These devices constitute a system for conveying messages to the road user which advise of traffic regulations in order to enable observance of the law, or warn of road characteristics, road hazards and temporary conditions. Meeting these objectives improves safety, serves the convenience of the road user, and promotes the efficient movement of persons and goods and the orderly flow of traffic.
Disponible en français : Manuel canadien de la signalisation routière (4e édition) (1998). (Note that the fifth edition published in English in 2014 is not yet available in French.)
