What Are Traffic Cones?

Traffic cones, commonly known as road cones or safety cones, are placed on walkways or roads to temporarily reroute traffic safely or stop pedestrians from entering work areas. They are frequently used to indicate dangers, construction zones and area boundaries. A traffic cone must adhere to certain visibility and durability requirements as outlined in Chapter 8 of the Department of Transport Regulations to be considered road legal in the UK. All our traffic cones at Lapwing comply with these regulations.
