The Department for Transport encourages the use of either '20 mph speed limits' or '20 mph speed limit zones' in urban situations where vulnerable road users are at particular risk.
Traffic calming zones are located in areas with a high level of pedestrians such a town centres or schools. The end of the 20 mph speed limit traffic calming zone sees the limit increased to 30 mph.
Both the give way and stop sign are regulatory signs, meaning that they are giving an order.
The difference between give way and stop sign other than the shape, is the text telling you what must be done. A give way sign tells you that you must give way to traffic ahead and a stop sign tells you that you must stop.
