New study report about the effectiveness of fluorescent pink road signs w/black text.


Do drivers really pay attention to Emergency Scene Ahead signs?

Great question Angela. I remember as a kid in the 1960's, all of dad's tow trucks were required by San Diego's hghway patrol to have these shaped signs for highway events (orange background and black  lettering). At some point, they weren't a required item. Since then, they haven't been required by the CHP for tow trucks responding to highway events. Now, some sixty-years later to this day, they aren't a requirement for CHP towers. I don't recall seeing them used recently even on major events. I like them for the, "visual", advanced emergency warning they provide, but I don't know just how effective they are when it comes to motorist's paying attention to them.      R.
