Colors[edit]

There is much work on signage colors, which is not addressed here. A new section, perhaps near the font section, is warranted. Marquess (talk) 07:23, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

History[edit]

Added a picture of a portuguese 17th century traffic sign to this section - ref. (in portuguese): http://www.ansr.pt/Portals/0/Padrao%20de%201686%20final.pdf
Couldn't find any reference to a type of vehicle described, named sége or sege - here's a few 18th/19th cent. examples:

Over "pictured"[edit]

This article has too many images that are incongruous, wrongly positioned/sized and offer nothing to the understanding of traffic signs. For example, an Australian sign of a kangeroo? And? Most countries have animal images for the indigenous wildlife. Deer in Europe, Moose in North America etc. The same types of signs are just repeated again and again, and they have little to do with the text. IMO this article needs a top down hard core edit.86.145.3.102 (talk) 12:58, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

False signs[edit]

There is a general trend to add signs in some countries taken by more or less similar ones of other countries. This is worse in the Wiki Commons galleries. Most Greek signs are wrong taken mainly from the Swedish ones, the Thai warning ones resemble US signs and some Iranian ones resemble German signs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.202.33.33 (talk) 20:32, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
