Road signs in Hungary are regulated in KRESZ (Hungarian: Közúti Rendelkezések Egységes Szabályozása). KRESZ is a collection of rules contained in a decree, legally known as 1/1975. (II. 5.) KPM-BM joint decree, which "regulates traffic on public roads in Hungary and on private roads not closed to public traffic". Since 1988, the most basic rules of traffic have been contained in Act I of 1988 on road traffic.[1] The rules of KRESZ are in many respects similar or identical to the rules of most countries with public transport. Road signs generally conform to the 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals and the European Agreement supplementing it, as well as their amendments that came into force in 1995.[2]

Hungary signed the Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals on 8 November 1968 and ratified it on 16 March 1976.[3]
