Lots of errors on this. These, plus "gental curve," "steep decent," "scholar patrol," and "emergency flachlight." Plus, it's overall obsolete because danger signs have white backgrounds, not blue (yellow for temporary signs). I'm guessing they used to be blue at one time.

SA has some really unique and interesting (and very good) sign designs. I have some sheets which show all the signs on 10 pages. I'd really like to scan and post them here but I don't think I'm allowed to because they're copyrighted. (Am I right about that?)

(PS: Last error is kind of funny. A "flashlight" in the US is what the Brits would call a "torch." It should be "flashing light." Plus it looks like they are now either blue (for police) or yellow (other hazards). Also, I noticed descent is spelled "decent" on my sheets too, so maybe that's how it's spelled in SA. Obviously spellings vary in different countries! (US and UK anyway) Odd it would be misspelled the same in 2 places.)

Seems like they went for complicated signs for important civil signs but minimalist design for highway and common road signage

United States | Big blue logo signs in urban areas?

Historically, the big blue logo signs that advertise food, gas, lodging, and camping businesses (with attractions and 24-hour pharmacies added in 2003) have been restricted to rural highways. With the 2000 Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, provisions to allow logo signs on urban highways were added as long as adequate sign spacing can be maintained. Still, many states have not adopted these provisions and continue to restrict their logo sign programs only to rural areas.

As far as I know, the following states allow the installation of logo signs in urban areas:
  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Iowa
  • Louisiana
  • Massachusetts
  • Minnesota
  • Nevada
  • North Carolina
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin
Are there any that I missed? I would like to know, are you for or against the installation of logo signs in urban areas?

I am personally for their installation in urban areas, as it is helpful to travelers who are unfamiliar with a particular area, and can bring additional revenue to the state, since the fees to get a logo sign in an urban area are typically higher than in rural areas due to the increased competition.

In Canada in Ontario you see them all over the provincial freeways at least in the greater Toronto area.

In Quebec never you see them in urban areas, I think they are prohibited (also, 3rd party advertising (billboards, etc) are prohibited near motorways in Quebec.

Connecticut has them too. The problem is if a company on the sign happens to close, the signs need to be replaced.

That is how it is everywhere; businesses pay the state (or a subcontractor to the state) a fee to have their logos installed on those signs.

MOROCCO :

Four years after Berber languages became official languages in Morocco, the state-owned company Autoroutes du Maroc is about to launch new traffic signs using Tifinagh script in the Berrechid - Beni Mellal highway (central Morocco). This script, used to write Berber languages, will only appear on 2500m distance signs and will not replaced neither Arabic script nor Latin script. It is still unclear whether this script will be used throughout the country or only in places where Berber-speaking populations are abundant.
