In the last picture above, you can clearly see the little bumps applied to the white lines which will make noise if you drive over them (somewhat like those "Botts dotts").

I've also seen them done in thicker lines, instead of such a pattern of little bumps.

Greetings,

It would've been better if you kept the Interstate shield. It's an integral part of navigating through the country.

Brazil is adopting a new standard for its signs, since 2008.
It reminds a little the american ones (the same green color, the same font, the same arrow), but with some differences.

Since Brazilians are more used to the highways' names instead the official numbers (there are both designations), the name of highways always are shown inside blue "boxes".



The state roads have a pentagon pattern for the shield:

And the BRs (national) roads have an exclusive pattern, as shown below:

*This pic show an old sign. The font in this shield is not the official one, I will take some pics to make this post more accurate

The colours for signs are:
Green: used for poiting locations
Blue: used for poiting highways and road police stations, mileage spots
Yellow: used for poiting information about the road (dangerous curves, slow down signs and other written info)
White: used for educational info (fasten your seat belts or speed trap ahead)
Brown: Touristic locations or information
Orange: Detours or works on the road




Since changing all the signs in Brazil is a very slow process, lots of out-of-standard signs still exists nationwide...
The standard will take decades to be really a national standard.

WOW! I wished Brazilian signage was just like American one... I think it so charming and organized

I love American signage! - clear and concise, especially freeways/interstates with signs and fonts much larger than most of the world.

If truth be told, I suspect other countries could learn a lot about laaaarge clear interstate/motorway signage from the USA, though there'll undoubtedly be those here in Europe who would scoff at such a suggestion

They do. They also apparently still have these, though I could only find one on Google Earth.

Canadian signage is green for the most part. Destinations and distances are on green signs. On a provincial/territorial level, attractions, provincial parks are generally on a blue, or brown sign, depending on location. Warning signs are yellow diamond shape, while construction signs are orange.

Well, SISTHO (Spanish touristic) signs are rather brown, although I have also seen pink ones.


I'll check if I have any signs so I can share with you.

A couple of days ago I was driving here and was mildly shocked by this sign:

had almost to stop to make any sense out of it.

Green means 'one-carriageway expressway/vía rápida' (now is a full motorway, A-43, and vías rápidas or green roads no longer exist, at least in the national network), while brown is for touristic destination:
