Attention Drivers

Some of you seem to be confused by the fact that stop and yield signs have the same colors.  To help you with that here is a quick tutorial.

This is a Yield Sign.

This is a Stop sign.

Although both are red, one is shaped like a triangle.

And the other is shaped like an octagon (eight sided).

The triangle shaped sign has the word Yield written in red letter on a white background.

The eight sided sign has the word STOP written in white letters on a red background.

This sign:

means you should only stop if necessary (e.g. There is a car approaching and if you kept going you would hit it or it would hit you.).

This sign:

means exactly what it says it says, stop.

Let's summarize.

This sign means:


And this sign means:


In other words:

This sign does not mean STOP!

And this sign does not mean YIELD!





So, are we clear, now?
