Sign of the week: Prepare to stop

Sign of the Week is a weekly feature here on the SenSen Driving School blog that demystifies some common head-scratching signs you’ll see as a driver.

“Prepare to stop” signs are typically placed where you would have trouble seeing the traffic light initially because of a hill or a curve. This sign is strategically placed well before the traffic light so the driver can respond accordingly.


As you are driving down a road and if you see this sign and the lights are not flashing, then you don’t need to worry about the traffic light changing on you.
If you see the lights flash, then you know the traffic light will be red or is about to change to a red light. Either way, you need to start braking and prepare to stop when you see the lights flash.
This sign is especially useful at night time because you’ll be much more prepared to stop for the light.
As always, please feel free to reach out to us at SenSen Driving School if you have any questions or concerns.
