Signage: Turn Restrictions

Turn restrictions may be used on local streets to reduce traffic congestion or a pattern of crashes.

Speed Limit Sign


  • Deters cut-through traffic on residential streets
  • Addresses accident problems such as rear-end or right angle crashes


  • Turn restrictions require regular enforcement to be effective
  • Residents, San Antonio Police and Fire Departments may be inconvenienced by the turn restrictions

Eligibility Considerations

  • Documented cut-through traffic should represent 25 percent or more of the total daily street volume
  • History of accidents that can be corrected by a turn restriction


Reduced Speed One Star   Reduced Volume No Star
