Sign Geek strikes again.

I’ve mentioned before that I am a huge “road enthusiast”. I love driving. I love roads. And I especially love road signs.

ADOT, otherwise known as the Arizona Department of Transportation, has the best signing practices in the entire country, bar none. Whenever I complain about another signing gaff to NYSDOT, I always tell them, take a vacation in Arizona and see how they do it.

To the average motorist, you probably don’t see much of a difference in the design of this sign from those on your own commute. But there are subtle differences that makes this sign better. I won’t bore you with the details, but I just had to say that ADOT rocks.

By the way, I climbed up an embankment at a rest area to get this shot.
