If you're driving your Clermont Toyota and you're about to pass a yellow diamond-shaped sign that reads "NO TRESPASSING", then you should treat that as a warning. You're approaching private property that you are not allowed on without permission. If you see a no trespassing road sign, you should begin figuring out how to safely turn around.
Railroad crossing road signs typically come in two different forms: a yellow circle with a large X and two letter "R's" or a large white X that reads "RAILROAD CROSSING." However the sign appears, this sign is a warning that you are approaching a railroad crossing. When you see this sign, you should slow down and drive your Clermont Toyota with caution. You may have to stop for a passing train. Slowing down while going over railroad tracks is safer because the tracks can cause your car tires to lose traction.
When you spot a yellow diamond-shaped road sign with a large black cross, you should expect a four-way intersection soon. This means that there will be stop signs or a traffic light, and you should expect traffic from four different directions. Proceed through a four-way intersection in your Clermont Toyota with caution and vigilance.
If you're searching for a parking spot and you see a white square sign with the letter "P" crossed out, this is not a spot you can park in. This road sign indicates no parking. If you park where it is prohibited, you could be given a parking ticket or have your Clermont Toyota towed.
