For your Stop Ahead signs to be effective, these should be placed a good distance from the actual stop area and mounted at a highly visible level. Try to find a spot where the sign will not be covered by foliage and can easily be seen by passing motorists. It will also need to be mounted securely to it's mounting spot in order to prevent it from falling off of its position. After all, a sign is only useful if it can be seen.
