ASAYAS, Patrick; GAMAYAN, Archie; RESULLAR, Lyndon S. I. Evaluation of Existing Warning Signs Figure 1. School Zone Sign located along Pearl Drive Evaluation for this warning sign (a) What is the action that is being warned against? The warning sign above warns vehicle drivers of a school (the University of Asia and the Pacific) up ahead, and that they should slow down upon reading this sign. (b) What are the consequences of that action? The warning sign above warns or “tells” vehicle drivers to slow down upon reading the sign. This is to give way for the students and school faculties who might be crossing at a nearby pedestrian. Moreover, this sign also alerts the vehicle drivers of a road bump located at the pedestrian aforementioned. If the warning sign is not seen or is taken for granted, the consequences that might arise from this situation would range from accidents and injuries, or, at its worst, could cause death. (c) Where is the warning located and why do you think that location was selected? The warning sign above is located at the corner of Pearl Drive St. (Brgy. San Antonio, Pasig City) and Lourdes St., a couple of steps away from the entrance to the university. The said location was selected because of its (close) proximity to the university’s main entrance. Moreover, the aforementioned location was also selected because it is where most vehicles would enter coming from Lourdes St. and Shaw Blvd. (entering from St. Jose Maria Escriva Drive circling the rear of Gold Loop building). (d) How durable is the warning label?

The warning sign above is made out of a thin, metallic sheet erected by a long, slender, thin metallic rod. Since the manufacturers made good use of metallic materials in manufacturing the warning sign above, it is safe to assume that the warning label is durable and strong. Moreover, as our group closely examined the warning sign, we found out that it is also coated by an ample amount of galvanized metal making it rust-proof. In addition, the paint used in making the prints (the elements in the warning label) is water and heat resistant, therefore, the prints cannot be erased easily, and are long-lasting too. (e) How many languages are used in the warning? The warning sign above made good use of only one language, English language, in expressing the message that it wants to express to its intended audience. (f) In what sense is the warning “complete?” In our opinion, the warning label is incomplete in a sense that it could have been produced with (1) better use of fonts (a font style that is more readable should have been used), (2) better choice of color (the use of color white does not capture much attention in comparison to the use of color yellow), and the use of images could also have helped in capturing the attention of the intended audience.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
