Road signs in Pakistan are modelled on the British and European road sign system, with an exceptional difference being that they are bilingual and contain messages in Urdu, the national language, and English,[1] and in some cases, the local regional or provincial languages. Pakistan follows the left-hand drive traffic system. Vehicles must be overtaken on their right.

There have often been complaints about road signs and infrastructure not being up to date in some parts of the country, with a traffic report in 2008 disclosing that local governments in many cases have not addressed damaged, vanished or outdated road regulatory signs. In Lahore alone, the report estimated that at least Rs. 800 million were required to furnish all scanty road signs in the city.[2]
