Signs to Help People
You can see signs everywhere you go. Signs show and tell you about things and places. If you are on a trip, a sign might
tell you how far the next town is or where an attraction
is located. While in a town or on a street, you see signs for names of stores, businesses, and streets. You need
to know that many signs tell us things to do and remember
for our safety.
Some signs you know quickly. When you are riding in a car with your parents or others, you might
see the stop sign. It is easily recognized. The word stop is in bold
and the sign background
is red. If you see this sign, be sure to stop. If you are walking look both ways to check to see if anything is coming before you go on.
Another sign that is important in traveling is the buckle
up seat belt sign. Many states have this on their highways to remind
people that not only it is the law to buckle
up, but it is for safety, too. Seat belts keep you from getting hurt in case you are in an accident
. Buckle up every time you get in a vehicle
The third sign shown you might
, but it is very important whether you are walking along with a friend or riding in a vehicle
. If you see the DANGER sign, it means that you must not go near that place. It might mean
that the place or building has chemicals or materials that are harmful
. You need
to stay away because there is a threat
that you could be hurt.
Signs are important in our lives and can help us know where to go, what to do, and what to stay away from, too.
