Ensure everyone makes it across the road safely with our pedestrian crossing signs
According to Australian Standards 1742, 1743 and 1906, regulatory road signs for pedestrians must have a yellow background with a black walking symbol that indicates that pedestrians are crossing up ahead.
There are various traffic laws attached to pedestrian crossing signs, including:
You must give way to pedestrians crossing the road
You must not overtake a vehicle that is stopping or has stopped for pedestrians crossing the road
You must not drive onto the crossing if the road ahead is blocked
If there’s a stop sign close to the crossing, you must stop at the sign — even if you just stopped at a pedestrian crossing sign.
All of these traffic laws are designed to protect pedestrians and the local community. Pedestrian crossing signs can also be used to direct pedestrians in the right direction on private properties.
At Safety Signs Australia, we design and print pedestrian crossing signs that meet the relevant Australian Standards. Available in durable materials like aluminium, hi-impact poly, Corflute and Colorbond Steel, our crossing signs are made to withstand the elements — no matter where they’re displayed.

FAQs about our regulatory road signs
How often do I need to replace my pedestrian signs?
It depends on the material and where your pedestrian signs have been displayed. Aluminium signs, for example, can last seven years or more with proper maintenance, even when displayed outdoors.
What material should I choose?
Most pedestrian crossing signs are displayed outdoors, so we recommend opting for a durable metal construction like aluminium or Colorbond Steel. These materials are corrosion-resistant and won’t fade, peel or crack in the harsh Australian weather.
Do I need a permit to display these signs?
Every council has its own regulations, so we recommend checking based on your location.
Are your crossing signs reflective?
Yes. It’s important for regulatory road signs to be reflective, so drivers travelling at different speeds and directions can clearly see them. The reflective design ensures pedestrian crossing signs are visible from all angles.
What do I need to consider when installing my signs?
There are a few things you will need to consider when installing your crossing signs. For example, you will need to consider the positioning — are your signs near trees or signposts? Are they obscured in any way? You will also need to measure the viewing distance, so drivers have enough time to register the sign and act accordingly. Ultimately, you want to ensure 100% visibility so drivers can adjust their speed and stop for pedestrians.
