Road signs in Zimbabwe

Road signs in Zimbabwe have many variations unique to Zimbabwe, but generally stay close to the Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals concerning the use of shape and colour to indicate function.

Recently, the Government of Zimbabwe agreed to harmonize traffic signs with those in other SADC countries; however, the progress of this programme as of 2016 is unknown.

Warning signs

Warning signs consist of an upwards-pointed triangle, with a plate below using pictograms to convey their particular meaning, similar to signs used in Britain before the 1960s. Malawi and Zambia use similar warning signs.
