Road signs in the Philippines are regulated and standardized by the Department of Public Works and Highways.[1] Most of the signs reflects minor influences from American and Australian signage, but keeps close to the Vienna Convention as an original signatory.

It is unclear if the Department of Public Works and Highways mandates the use of Clearview as its official typeface for signs, but some road signs do use them.
