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, the SADC-RTSM became native legislation in Zimbabwe in 2016, however the progress of implementation is current.
