Still More Photos


If you're a fan of roadside photography, some more of my roadside photos have been posted to Mark Roberts' cosmos-monitor web site including this sign assembly in Stilwell, Oklahoma. So what's wrong? US 51 doesn't go into Oklahoma. It's supposed to be Oklahoma Highway 51.
Also featured are several signs spotted on my recent trip to Louisiana & Mississippi as well as a few miscellaneous Arkansas photos. Click here for a complete list of updates.

Flashing Yellow Arrives


Flashing Yellow Left Turn Signals have arrived in Fort Smith. The first of what will be several signals has been installed at the intersection of Rogers Ave (AR 22) and Old Greenwood Rd.
For those unfamilar with the Flashing Left Arrow, it is intended to warn motorists that a left turn is permissable but not protected. The Federal Highway Administration has determined this signal is safer than the traditional Left Green Arrow, Left Yellow Arrow and Steady Green.
A Steady Green arrow means a protected left turn. The signal then changes to a Steady Yellow Arrow before changing to a Flashing Yellow Arrow (Left Turn permitted, yield to oncoming traffic).
So, don't be surprised if you start to see more of these signals.
The Fort Smith Southwest Times Record published a story on this on April 16th.
