(Quiz) Do You Know Your Road Signs?

Direction uncertainty with a landscape of confused tangled roads and highways and a group of traffic signs competing for influence as a symbol of the challenges of planning a strategy for success.

Quick: What does a blue road sign mean?

Not sure? You’re not alone. But deciphering signs—quickly—is essential to your safety.

Fortunately, the research designers understand this. “A good sign must be comprehensible at a glance,” says M. Pronin, a member of the International Road Sign Comprehension Evaluation Project (yes, there is one). Given that road signs can incorporate words, symbols, specific colors—or any combination of these, they can be confusing. More concerning, some drivers don’t know what certain road signs mean, or they might misinterpret them, which can be dangerous.

“Signs with more than an 80 percent level of comprehension are considered very well understood, but testing reveals even the most ‘obvious’ signs rarely score 100 percent comprehension,” says Pronin.

    Another important piece of information. Exit signs ahead of Interstate highway exits show a number of that exit on top of the sign. This exit number is usually on the right end of the board. If the exit lane is at the left side (fast lane) it is placed on the left end of the bard.
    Most drivers never notice or have no knowledge of it.
